No. 9 

Or, C. A. Lynch Chosen to Head L. V. 

Board of Trustees Last Friday 



jsjew President Is Well Qualified; 
At Present A Member of the 
Faculty At Bonebrake 

Rev. Dr. C. A. Lynch, D.D., Ph.D., of 
Harrisburg, Pa , and Dayton, Ohio, was 
chosen by the board of trustees last Fri- 
day to fill the office of preiident, for- 
merly held by the late Dr. George D. 
Gossard. He will assume his new duties 
December 1. 

Dr. Lynch is a graduate of L. V. C, 
receiving his A. B. degree in 1918. He 
then attended Bonebrake Theological 
Sen-inary at Dayton, Ohio, where he re- 
ceived his B. D. Lebanon Valley College 
in 1925 and 1926 conferred upon him 
his A. M. and D. D. degrees respective- 
ly. Pursuing further study in the Uni- 
versity of Penna. the new president re- 
ceived his A. M. in 1929 and his Ph.D. 
in 1931. Besides being a student in the 
Philadelphia institution, Dr. Lynch was 
instructor in psychology and is at pres- 
ent a member of the American Psycho- 
logical Association. 

From 1930 to the present time, Doctor 
Lynch has been Professor of Homileties 
and Practical Theology at Bonebrake 
Seminary. He was a trustee of Lebanon 
\ alley College and is a member of the 
Ephrata Lodge, No. 665, F. and A. M. 

Being born of Mr. and Mrs. John H. 
Lynch of Harrisburg, the new executive 
has been definitely acquainted with the 
college and its activities over a period of 
years, and it is believed that he will be 
a great help to the rapid progress which 
the institution is making. 



The Men's Senate was inaugurated 
on Thursday, September 22, in the 
College Chapel. Professor Wagner 
addressed the candidates before they 
were administered the oath of office 
Six f-nio-s were rnven the Senate pin

their service's. 

The inauguration had an almost 
solemn air in keeping with the sworn 
intention of the Senate bo 'y this

«Y» Gives Hike for 
Frosh ; Fine Program 

Friday evening of Freshman Week, a 
hike was held for the Freshmen. About 
°ne hundred Freshmen met at North 
Mall at five-thirty. The objective of the 
hike was the grove near the Cleona camp 
Meeting ground. While a fire was built, 
a 'l played games. The chaperons, Dr. 
ar "J Mrs. Jones and Prof, and Mrs 
k'ghr, besides performing their usual 
^ u ty, helped in directing the games. 

When all the appetites were satisfied 
a nd the fire was low, songs were sung 
an d a short program followed. Chester 
Goodman acted as master of ceremonies. 
R "th Coble, president of the Y. W. C. 
^> and Stewart Werner, president of 
^ e Y. M. C. A., welcomed the newest 
Ambers of the L. V. family. Then each 
was represented. Samuel Ulrich, as 

e «Uted a Senior, spoke a few words of

e reputation of the Jolly Juniors, gave 
5 short reading on grammar school hap- 
Pen 'ngs. Dale Roth, a new Sophomore,

Lebanon Valley was over. 

Largest Frosh Class 
Arrives at L V. C. 


Musjcal Department Shows Large 
Increase In Registration; 
Classes Organize 

The period from Tuesday, September 
13, to Saturday, September 17, witnessed 
the orientation of another class in Leba- 
non Valley, that of '36. From all pres- 
ent indications, it promises to be one of 
the outstanding classes in the history of 
the institution. 

The program for the incoming stu- 
dents was built jointly by the faculty and 
the Christian associations, the faculty 
"aking care of the registration, intelli- 
gence tests, and welcoming banquet, the 
associations mainly dealing with the so- 
cial arrangements. 

Among the first students to return this 
year were the cabinets of the Y. W. and 
Y. M. C. A. A joint cabinet meeting 
was held on Tuesday, September 13, at 
three o'clock, for the purpose of com- 
pleting the arrangement's for the Fresh- 
men, and looking after a few minor de- 
tails in the work. 

The real work of the school started on 
Wednesday of the Freshman period with 
registration. This was done as usual in 
the Biology Laboratory on the third floor 
of the Administration Building. The 
faculty advisors were in charge, with 
members of the "Y's" giving assistance 
wherever needed. 

Social life for the Class of '36 began 
on Wednesday evening, September 14, 
when separate meetings were held by the 
Christian Associations. The new girls

L. V. Clawed by Nittany Lions; Lose 

Many Chances to Score in 27-0 Defeat 


Wanted: A Name 

Lebanon Valley's athletic teams in 
the past have struggled over fields, home 
and foreign, open to the jest of ambi- 
tions sports writers simply because the 
Blue and White have never had a nick- 
name or mascot. The athletic depart- 
ment of our fair institution now realizes 
the necessity of a nickname and have 
given the same due consideration. 

Believing that such a choice should 
not be limited to the judgment of a few, 
the Athletic Association has decided to 
rest the case in the hands of the stu- 
dents and faculty. As an incentive to 
conscientious consideration the above 
named organization offers a cash prize 
of five dollars (#5.00) to the individual 
making the best suggestion. All students, 
day or dorm and all faculty members 
are eligible. The Athletic Council of the 
college will act as judge. 

The procedure is simple and every 
student should jump at this chance to 
gain fame — not merely the cash prize. 
The future of Lebanon Valley's athletic 
reams depends upon the present studem 
body. In years to come we will not bow 
in shame to the Muhlenberg Mules, 
Fordham Rams, Purdue Boiler Makers,

Judging from the increased volume 
and the splendid quality of the strains 
of music coming from the conservatory, 
we can all easily realize how much big- 
ger and better our music department has 
grown this year. Twenty-seven freshman

Literary Societies 
Present Chapel Skits 


Clio, Delphian, Philo and Kalo 
Ooen Membership Drive In 
Friday Night Program 

The Literary Societies on the campus 
joined in their annual welcoming pro- 
gram on Friday night, September 30, at 
eight o'clock. 

Clio took up it's share of the program 
with a tea scene from Alice in Wondsr- 
land. The characters included Margaret 
Kohler as Alice, Mae Fauth as the Mad 
Hatter, Christine Gruber as Micky 
Mouse, Miriam Miller as the Mad Marsh 
Hare, and Rose Dieter and Lena Cock- 
shott as Herald-.. The costumes were 
furnished by Jane Muth. The skit was 
the first of it's type to be presented on 
our campus. It was delightful and unique 
to say the least. 

Philo presented a typical fake side 
show. Mr. Palatini deserved commenda- 
tion for his work, not only in the show 
itself as a barker, but also as chiefly re- 
sponsible for its production. The show 
began with an outside demonstration of 
the World's Largest Fat Lady, DeWitt 
Essick. After the usual ticket ballyhoo, 
the scene changed to the inside of the 
tent, where were shown Algire McFaul 
and Kenneth Whisler joined together as 
the Siamese Twins, Stuart Werner, sleep- 
ing his life away as Rip Van Winkle, 
Allan Ranck entertaining the crowd as 
Senor Rinauldo, the Juggler, Clyde 
Mentzer without legs, Dick Walborn the 
Human Smokestack, and Jim Hughes 
usin;; his hypnotic powers plus a rope to 
raise Steffy into the spiritual realm. 
However, these wonders were as nothing 
compared to the exhibition of the Aus- 
tralian Roll, a wild animal now

Feeser, Rust, Boran and Stone Shine 
In Backfield But Lack Final 
Drive; Volkins Good 

Lebanon Valley's fighting crew of 
football players opened their 1932 grid 
season last Saturday with a 27-0 licking 
from Penn State. The score, however, 
doe? an injustice to Lebanon Valley as 
the valiants pushed inside State's five 
yard line on four occasions and would 
probably have scored in at least two of 
these if Coach Mylin would have had 
Lebanon Valley's full strength in the 
game on these plays. 

Lebanon Valley equaled State in first 
downs but long runs by Coach Bob Hig- 
gins' backs gave State their needed 
rcores. However two of these scores came 
about as breaks in the game. State's first 
touchdown was scored on a sustained 
drive from the 35 yard line after Leba- 
non Valley had punted from her own 7 
yard line. The second State score came 
as a result of Kreizman's interception of 
Rust's pass on the 25 yard line. 

Stone and Rust were the most consis- 
tent Lebanon Valley ball toters while 
Haupen was the best ground gainer pro- 
duced by State. 

Lebanon Valley played a passing game 
from start to finish, with the exception 
of an opening second half drive which 
took her to State's four yard line. Twen- 
ty passes were tried by the Mylinmen. 
Five were completed for a total of 112 
yards. State passed eight times and com- 
pleted three for a 32 yard total. 

The Lebanon Valley line showed up 
well against the much heavier State for- 
ward wall. Captain "Murphy" Kazlusky 
was in every play both defensively and 
offensively. Many combinations of line- 
men were tried by Coach Mylin with a 
varied amount of success. Many of the 
new Frosh linemen showed much prom- 

First Quarter 

Lebanon Valley received the ball on 
her own 10 yard line and after three un- 
successful, starts at the State line punted 
to State's 30 yard stripe. Haupen crashed 
center for five yards; Wantshouse made 
6 around end for State's first first down. 
From here on in eight more plays State 
crashed the Lebanon Valley line until 
Haupen went over for a touchdown on 
the last five yards. Wantshouse kicked 
the extra point. Score, State 7, L. V. C. 
0. Lebanon Valley received again and 
Rust returned the ball to State's 40 yard 
line for a nice 35 yard gain. Whiting 
made a yard through center and the next 
play, a pass, Boran to Smith, netted 10 
yards, placing the ball on the 20 yard 
marker. With two incompleted passes 
and two unsuccessful line stabs Lebanon 
Valley lost the ball to State in downs. 
State punted to the 35 yard line, L. V. 
started her second drive toward the goal. 
Boran, Light and Feeser advanced the 
ball in three plays to the 20 yard stripe, 
Boran hit the left side of the line for 4 
yards and on the next play made a first 
down on the State 7 yard line. Score, 
State 7, L. V. C. 0.

Welcome again! That you are now 
one of us goes without saying. Make 
yourself at home. You are here for four 
years, and probably the four happiest 
years of your life. That may sound like 
a choice bit of rhetoric, but it's true nev- 
ertheless. Ask any college grad. We live 
in a world different in many respects to 
any other world. We have our own sys- 
tem of ethics, our own codes. Our sug- 
gestion would be that you learn our code 
and creed as soon as possible. There is 
nothing so pitiful than a man "out of 
joint." But all of this does not mean 
that you should go "collegiate." That 
word has in this hard world too frivolous 
a connotation. The rah-rah boy and girl 
has disappeared on the campus. We are 
a sterner lot, although, as you will have 
already noticed we have not lost our 
sense of humor. The fake murder, coun- 
cil meetings, initiations and general 
horseplay bear testimony to that fact. 
We are sterner, in that we have nna 
realized that we are here primarily for 
an education. This is often forgotten. 
We trust that you will not. You have an 
excellent opportunity ahead of you, an 
opportunity offered only to a select 
group. Therefore, make the best of it. 
Become interested in things. If you have 
time, enjoy the benefits of our extra-cur- 
ricula activities. 


With this issue we commence another 
year at your Alma Mater. We will con- 
tinue the policy, not only of printing 
news pertinent to our interests, but also 
of maintaining a lively column of Alum- 
ni news, which should be of especial in- 
terest to you. We are trying to build a 
greater Lebanon Valley, but we obvious- 
ly cannot do so without your support. 
And we seek to enlist your aid through 
two means, first that you send us any- 
thing pertaining to an alumnus and sec- 
ondly, that you keep in touch with your 
Alma Mater through the medium of this 


I Beyond the Campus 

We, who have spent three years here, 
can probably appreciate the improve- 
ment in the food served in the dining 
hall more than the Frosh. Of all the sur- 
prises planned by the administration this 
one deserves the greatest commendation. 
Heretofore going to meals was a neces- 
sary routine. Now it is a pleasure. Con- 
gratulations then to all concerned and to 
the dietitian. Long may she guide our 
gastronomic destiny! 

wo Newcomers 

To Faculty Body 


A newcomer to our faculty this year 
is Miss Margaret A. Wood. She is a 
graduate nurse of the hospital of the 
Protestant Episcop fl 'Church in Philadel- 
phia, and has received her B. S. in Edu- 
cation at Temple University. Besides 
being dean of South Hall, she is campu: 
nurse and dietitian. Her supervision of 
the kitchen and dining hall has brought 
about a very noticeable change in the 
meals served here. 


One of the latest additions to the fac- 
ulty of Lebanon Valley College is none 
other than Professor Alvin H. M. Stone- 
cipher, who now has charge of the Latin 
department of the college curriculum. 
In that capacity he succeeds Professor 
Ohr, who lately resigned the position he 
had held for two years. 

Professor Stonecipher has a most en- 
viable record, as a glance at his work in 
the past will indicate. Although born in 
Indiana, he spent his early period o, 
youth in Tennessee, where he was reared 
and educated. Upon graduation from 
high school, he enrolled as a student in 
the McFerrin School, Martin, Tennes- 
see, from which place he was graduated 
in 1909. Then he entered Vanderbilt 
University and in 1913 received the de- 
gree of Bachelor of Arts. During his 
four years at Vanderbilt, Professor 
Stonecipher was honored by election to 
Phi Beta Kappa, national scholastic hon- 
orary fraternity. 

The next year saw him working for 
a Master of Arts degree, which was 
awarded to him in 1914. Then followed 
a period during 1916-17 when Professor 
Stonecipher pursued graduate work at 
Peabody College, Nashville, Tennessee. 
By 1917 he had completed the require- 
ments for a Doctor of Philosophy degree 
which Vanderbilt University promptly 
awarded to him. 

During the year 1912-13 he was em- 
ployed as a part time instructor of Greek 
and German in Trevecca College, Nash- 
ville, Tennessee. From 1913 till 1916 he 
served as principal of Watkins Institute 
Evening School in Nashville. In the sum- 
mer of 1916 he taught modern languages 
in the University of Mississippi Summer 
School. Then in the fall of 1916 he took 
a position as part time teacher in the 
Bowen School, Nashville. After teach- 
ing in that capacity for one year, he be- 
came Professor of Ancient Languages at 
Indiana Central College, Indianapolis, 
Indiana, which position he held from 
1917 to 1932. 

As an author, Doctor Stonecipher has 
written a book entitled "Graeco-Persian 
Names," in the Vanderbilt Oriental 
Series. This has been published by the 
American Book Co. 

And so Doctor Stonecipher comes to 
our campus with a vast experience and 
excellent' qualifications which will assure 
him the same success at L. V. C. as he 
has enjoyed in former positions. The La 
Vie joins the faculty and student body 
in extending him a hearty welcome, and 
best wishes for a successful year. 

Soviet Russia, faced with a shortage 
of physicians, scientists, teachers and au- 
thors, has inaugurated a spirited cam- 
paign to overcome this deficiency. It is 
claimed that the Russian youth, feeling 
it is not respectable to be intellectual, 
prefer jobs at which they can work with 
their hands. In 1932 Russia is in need 
of 17,000 more physicians and 25,000 
school teachers. This scarcity, on a sim- 
ilar scale, applies to librarians and ac- 
countants. Youth organizations are now 
requested to put forth their efforts to 
encourage a social-cultural intelligentsia 
as well as an industrial-technical intelli- 

It is hard for us living in America to 
understand the victory of Mahatma 
Gandhi over the British Government 
The pacifist sees here an excellent prac- 
tical example for his theories. In this 
case, it is unlikely that all India under 
arms could accomplish what this frail 
man set out to do. The fighter in the 
battle soon loses sight of the issue, and 
with his death, the issue is lost, too. But 
not in this case. The world and the 
British Government realized that death 
would only increase the passion for his 
cause. The Gandhis of this world are 
scarce; most of us lack either the sin- 
cerity or the determination, but here is 
the proof that when a man is willing to 
die for an idea, that idea will live on. 

The Philadelphia Orchestra Associa- 
tion recently announced that this year's 
concerts "will be almost entirely devoted 
to the acknowledged masterpieces of or- 
chestral music." This simple statemen. 
has evoked a storm of protest on the part 
of the liberals headed by Leopold Sto- 
kowski who supports his position by de- 
claring: "If the classicist's will remem- 
ber that new genius will surely arise in 
the future just as it did in the past, Bee- 
thoven, Mozart, Schubert, Brahms and 
Wagner were all modernists in the'r 
days, we can all combine in a spirit of 
tolerance and open-mindedness." 

Is it not true in music, as in other 
fields, we must not block the progress of 
the future by the glories of the past? 

Twenty thousand men, women, and 
children commit suicide in this country 
every year. Dr. L. L. Dublin, statistician 
of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Com- 
pany claims that the startling increase 
in the number of suicides is not entirely 
due to the depression but rather to a lack 
of character or mental maturity. Many 
people commit suicide because of lack 
of interest in life. Several years ago a 
New York newspaper discussed the ques- 
tion, "Is suicide a sin?" During the 
period of discussion there was a marked 
decrease in the number of suicides, due, 
we suppose, to the new interest in life 
afforded by the discussion. 

Another suggestion following Doak's 
ruling forbidding the part-time employ- 
ment of foreign students is that of R. M. 
Easley, chairman of the National Civic 
Federation, who assails our colleges as 
hot-beds of radicalism and suggests the 
ban of alien students. He charges that 
the majority of dangerous characters in 
South America and the Far East were 
educated in American universities and 
reflect the dangerous teachings of the 
professors who are atheists, pacifists, so- 
cialists or Communists. These sugges- 
tions have met the disapproval, not only 
of undergraduates, but of educators and 
of the press, as well. 

The Lytton Commission, in a report 
recently published, censures Japan for 
forcibly seizing and occupying undis- 
putably Chinese territory. The Commis- 
sion also recommends the complete with- 
drawal of Japanese troops from Chinese 
soil and the creation of an autonomous 
Manchurian State under Chinese sov- 

According to a Japanese spokesman, 
Japan will ignore the League findings 
unless the League attempts to act upon 
them. Although in the League of Na- 
tion? circle the report was criticised for 
not offering an immediate program for 
getting Japan out of Manchuria, the 
geneial Chinese opinion seems to be that 
this report will provide a basis for the 
settlement of the Sino-Japanese dispute. 

Good news for college students! The 
House post-office subcommittee recom- 
mends the restoration of the 2-cent post- 
age rate on first class mail to "provide 
mote revenue and work opportunities." 
The committee condemned the Hoover 
furlough plan for driving 20,000 men 
out of work instead of putting more peo- 
ple to work as was originally intended.

nearly extinct, and so very valuable. 
When the cage was unveiled, there stood 
Prof. Gingrich's dog, the campus pet. 
The applause of the audience spoke well 
for the Philo program. 

Delphian was represented by the good 
chip S. S. Delphian. The curtain opened 
on. a typical deck scene with Captain 
Forey and her staff passing the afternoon 
with the passengers playing bridge and 
dancing. Suddenly, a drowning woman 
is spied, and the crew hasten to rescue 
Gloria Lavanture, who is just in time for 
the entertainment of the afternoon. Ruth 
Bailey, talented pianist, provides one of 
the numbers and also accompanies Betty 
Ford in a well-executed tap dance. Mari- 
on Kruger does a clever imitation of 
Maurice Chevalier and the program con- 
cludes with a toast to Delphian. The 
costumes and scenery effects combined 
to make Delphian's share in the evening 
a success. 

Last but not least, Kalo put on a novel 
^nd very amusing pantomine. Bill Barnes 
and William Speg as radio announcers 
went through the history of Babe Earley 
in the character of Elmer Rabinowitz, a 
Frosh at Lebanon Valley, while the dra- 
ma was enacted on the stage. The first 
act dwelt on the verdancy and awk- 
wardness of the Frosh, and his infatu- 
ation with Carl Long, impersonating a 
female member of the class. She spurn 
him, so he decides to become a big 
bronzed athlete and so command her re- 
rpect and love. The second act show 
him as a successful football player. The 
band, namely Warren Mentzer and 
Leonard Schrope, parades before the 
game and during the half. The game 
with Albright starts after all the players 
come tripping in to be introduced. They 
include Anderson, Buzzell, Klitch and 
Ricker, with Hauck as referee. The an- 
tics of the players kept the spectators in 
an uproar. Finally the game ends, and 
Elmer, the hero, goes to pursue his love 
:n the third act. She spurns him again 
so he beats her and becomes a woman 
hater. True to life, however, he cannot 
change his nature and so falls again 
when George Shirk, another pretty 
coed, enters and vamps him. 

The skit might also be construed as a 
satire on football and love. 

Following the skit's, the societies were 
hosts at an informal dance in the gym-

The Y. W. C. A. held a vesper service 
on the campus Sunday evening. Louella 
Heilman was the leader. The subject of 
the evening was "God in Nature." Mari- 
no Kruger read a short poem, "Still, 
Still with Thee," as the opening medita- 
tion. A psalm was read and prayer of- 
fered by Flo Grimm. Then Marian May, 
Helen Grusko, and Gladys Withelder 
read short poems on God and the Flow- 
ers. Arline Heckrote talked on the sub- 
ject "How God Speaks to Us Through 
Nature." The service was dismissed after 
n closing hymn. 


Back again to another year of work 
and fun at Lebanon Valley. We cer- 
tainly miss the graduates and the stu- 
dents who were unable to return. We 
wish John Trego lots of luck in his new 
home — New Orleans — and his new school 
— Tulane. 

Year after year the old fake murder 
fools the freshmen completely. It's funny 
how a medical red can seem perfectly 
like blood through the eyes of frightened 
men. Miss Wood certainly deserves a 
hand for her part in the melodrama. 
Her climax is worth repeating: "Well 
good-night Mr. Clemens," she said as 
she was leaving. "Hurry and get well so 
you won't be late for breakfast in the 
morning." And then there was the 
frerhman girl, Louise Gillian, who in all 
seriousness said, "Sam Ulrich drunk! 
and he comes from such good Christian 
parents. What a shame!" 

We nominate for the Hall of Fame: 
Tack Todd because he sat in Madame 
Greene's place in the dining hall. Stew- 
art Byers because he called Mrs. Hall 
Mrs. Pennway. Wilbur Shroyer because 
he entertained seventeen wild sophomores 
for the greater part of Monday night. 
Trula Koch because she fell so gracefully 
at the post-office. Her downfall, so 'tis 
said, was due to a mysterious and en- 
grossing letter. Mitchell Jordan and 
Tom May because they put on such a 
fine weeping act on Monday night. 

With all four societies working indus- 
triously, we can expect a mighty good 
four-cornered meeting on Friday night. 

The campus high lights for the week 
Were: Miss Martha Elser's enthralling 
v iolin solo at opening exercises. Dale 
Roth's delightful heart songs and bal- 
lads. Someone practicing on a brass horn 
it 6 A. M. Eighteen tables up for break- 
fa-e. Mathias' abridged new edition of 
Bing Crosby songs. There is no notice- 
able improvement. Mr. Earley success, 
fully passing himself off as a freshman. 
The reopening of the magnificent Astor 
thentre. ♦ 

We compliment Mr. Cassel for his 
amazing ability to sleep through noise. 
Three men pounding and kicking his 
door one night found it impossible to 
rouse him from his Morpheatic indul- 
gences. When asked if he had any state- 
ment for the press Mr. Cassel modestly 
remarked: "My mother often wondered 
how I slept through thunder-storms." 

Hi-Baby! Applicable .. 
To the Frosh Girls 

This year the annual Freshman 
dress up day masqueraded as a baby 
party. All the guests wore simple 
white dresses trimmed with blue rib- 
bon. They were also requested to 
wear blue hair ribbon bows. The 
party met on the steps of North Hall 
at five o'cock. Then the guests (each 
with a toy) paraded to the middle of 
the campus. Here they played such 
games as farmer in the dell, ring 
around the rosy, and London bridge 
is falling down. After a few cheers, 
the girls met again at North Hall 
steps and gave a short program. The 
sound of the dinner bell cut short the 
speeches. The guests had special ta- 
bles in the dining hall. They were 
served with specially prepared dish- 
es, which they ate with soup spoons. 
Each little guest was then presented 
with a lolly pop, and dress-up d a y 
was over for another year. 




The Muhlenberg "Mules" who meet 
banon Valley in Allentown this Fri- 
a y night under the arc lights, will offer 
-lenty of stiff opposition for Coach My- 
in's L. V. boys. The Mules won from 
t . Joe in their opener by a 26-0 score 
an d lost to the strong Lafayette squad 
on Saturday by only one touchdown, the 
score being 6-0. Lebanon Valley is out 
for a victory over a school in her own 
lass so let's follow the team to Allen- 
w n on Friday night and root for a vic- 
ry over the "Mules." 

In talking over State's victory on Sat- 
urday with many members of the stu- 
~n': body, in every instance it was found 
iat they would rather see their Alma 
Mater play schools in their own class, 
in or lore, rather than play so many 
rge schools entirely out of our class or 
schools which continually are allowed to 
beat us, even though Lebanon Valley 
has a team which could clean up in her 
own class. 

It looks as if Coach Mylin has some 
good grid material in the Freshman 
Class from what we saw of the game on 
Saturday. Here's hoping that some day 
they'll turn the trick and bring home the 
bacon from State. 

Mt. St. Mary's, our rival from over 
the Mason-Dixie line, had a tough time 
f it in her first two games. She came off 
ith a scoreless tie against the St. Joe 
Hawks of Philadelphia in her first game 
-nd last Saturday lost to Georgetown U. 
y a 26-0 count. 

L. V. C. meets the strong Fordham U 
earn on October 15 at the Polo Ground 
in New York. The "Rams" beat Balti- 
more U. last Saturday by a 69-0 score 
and should be the strongest team L. V. C. 
meets this season but the L. V. delega- 
tion which travels over to the game i- 
looking for a victory. Let's show one of 
the big fellows a real game. Nothing is 
impossible. Remember Brown.

Frosh Battle Sophs . 
In Numeral Fight 

The annual Soph-Frosh numeral 
fight was staged on Monday, September 
19. The excitement lasted from the early 
evening until the freshman and sopho- 
mores decided to cease hostilities at a 
very wee hour of the morning. 

It was an old story. The Sophomores 
w:nt into hiding very early in the day 
while the Freshmen, as per custom, hiked 
around the town hunting them with a 
chorus of blood curdling shreiks, cat- 
calls, and yells. But it was not until three 
A. M. that the Sophs decided to begin 
the night's duties. They filed from Wil- 
'e:t Shroyer's residence (where bridge, 
pinochle, and refreshments had been en- 
joyed by all) seventeen strong. Little did 
they realize that the now historical Bat- 
tle of Ad Building was soon to be fought. 
Banners in arms they rounded the cor- 
ner of the Ad Building adjoining the 
Library when a veritable avalanche of 
blood thirsty Frosh twenty-seven in num- 
ber pounced upon them. Another small 
band attacked from the rear. 

The Sophomores had expected a re- 
occurrence of last year's event when they, 
as Freshmen, had disbanded quickly un- 
der pressure. But in a short minute it 
was apparent that these Freshmen were 
a determined and game lot. With a shout 
of "Get their banners or die," they wad- 
ed in. It was a case of catch as catch 
can or get caught yourself. Never has 
the campus seen so much dust as flew in 
this memorable battle. But there is al- 
ways an element of uncertainty among 
the Freshmen which is a huge aid to 
their opponents, and little by little they 
retreated. The Sophomores had met the 
enemy and they were theirs. But, with 
tongues hanging and lungs gasping for 
breath, they considered themselves one 
lucky lot. It was unanimously declared 
that the Frosh had plenty of reserve. 

For several ensuing hours the Sopho- 
mores were busy hanging blue and white 
banners on every handy projection. They 
then encamped in the center of the cam- 
pus to guard the battle field. 

Six A. M. saw Mr. Sun and a new 
band of Freshmen peeping around the 
corner of the conservatory. It was the 
last stand. The Sophs dragged them- 
selves to their feet and marched half- 
heartedly to meet them. The Freshmen, 
tired and sleepy too, stood half-hearted- 
ly waiting. This time it was with sleepy 
smiles rather than angry scowls that the 
bands met. It wasn't long before Fresh- 
men, arm in arm with Sophomores, 
laughing .and joking about the night's 
events, directed their weary frames to- 
ward the dormitory. 

And the "dawn's early light" found 
Sophomore banners "still waving on 
high" — an extremely hard job but a re- 
petition of other years — a Sophomore 
victory through only the bewilderment 
of the new men. 

Intercollegiate Girls 
Hockey Planned 


Miss Kenyon to Coach Team Which 
Will Engage Eastern 
Girls' Colleges 

A meeting of all women students in- 
terested in hockey was called by Miss 
Mildred Kenyon, director of physical 
education, September 29, for the purpose 
of electing a manager and an assistant 
manager of a varsity hockey team. 

Mit,s Kenyon has succeeded in gain- 
ing permission to institute intercollegiate 
hockey from the administration and ath- 
letic council. Although there has been 
comment upon this subject for several 
years final consent was not given until 
the past week. 

Miss Miriam Owen and Miss Martha 
Kreider were elected manager and as- 
sistant manager respectively. The schools 

which desire to play us and with whom 
we are in contact are Ursinus, Cedar 
Crest, Wilson and Bucknell. The games 
of this season will be played necessarily 
away from home, due to the fact that 
we do not have a large enough space 
upon which to play. 

Although our team has not been or- 
ganized the Lebanon Valley girls expect 
to start with a spirit that will last through 
the years and cause a feeling for inter- 
collegiate hockey which will continue as 
the feeling for intercollegiate basketball 
has continued. 

Miss Kenyon, as coach, has had in- 
valuable experience in hockey. Besides 
this being her major subject she has had 
English instructors in hockey camps dur- 
ing the past few summers. 

With the continued interest of the 
girls and the unfailing efforts of Miss 
Kenyon the Lebanon Valley girls should 
make a showing against these teams which 
have had organized intercollegiate hockey 
for several years. 

Morgan Edwards spoke at Student 
Prayer Meeting Wednesday night on the 
subject, "Living a Christian Example." 


The Life Work Recruits held a 
tegular meeting on Thursday, Sep- 
tember 29, in North Hall Parlor. 
President Harry Zech opened and 
conducted the meeting. The object 
was to organize for the year. In a 
general discussion the aim of the or- 
ganization was given as a gathering 
of Christian workers to discuss prob- 
lems of the day in their field. 

The committees appointed by the 
president were: 

Program, Lucille Engle, Chairman; 
Ruth Agen, Ray Johnson, Paul Emen- 
heiser, Morgan Edwards. 

Deputation, Warren Mentzer, 
Chairman; Charles Daugherty, Ches- 
ter Goodman, Stewart Werner, Lena 
Cockshott, Ruth Garner. 

Constitution, Ruth Coble, Chair- 
man; Chester Goodman. 

.... IT'S TIME TO 
Telephoie Home! 

OlGHT-THIRTY P. M. is the time to telephone 

The day's rush is over; the night's still young. There's 
plenty of time for a newsy, intimate chat. The fam- 
ily's at home, eager to hear your voice. (They'll be 
there for sure if you telephone as a regular habit, the 
same time each week.) 

What is more, it is cheapest to telephone after 8:30 
P. M. That is when the low Night Rates go into effect 
on Station to Station calls. For 45c you can then call 
as far as 140 miles away! 

Yes, it's surprisingly inexpensive, as these typical 
rates show. But be sure you make a Station to Station 
call. Just give your home telephone number to the 
operator and hold the line. If you like, the charges 
can be reversed.

Frosh Meet Faculty 
In Alumni Gym 


Student Heads Address Frosh; Re- 
ception In Gymnasium Intro- 
duces Frosh 

Saturday, September 17, Lebanon Val- 
ley College held its annual Student and 
Faculty reception in Engle Conservatory. 

The program was opened by Miss 
Martha Elser, who rendered two violua 
solos. This was followed by Dr. J. R. 
Engle, acting president of the college, 
who gave a short talk of welcome to all 
new and old students of the college. 

Dr. R. R. Butterwick, faculty advisor 
of the Y. M. C. A., also spoke on how 
highly important it is for a student not 
to forget religion, morals, and clean 
sportsmanship once he has taken up his 
student activities. 

Miss Marion May as president of the 
Women's Student Government Associa- 
tion, gave a brief but very impressive 
welcome speech. She skillfully portrayed 
what part the W. S. G. A. plays in a 
girl's student life. 

Mr. Woodrow Dellinger as president 
of the Men's Senate, gave a brief ac- 
count as to what the Senate also plays 
in every man's college life. 

The Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. 
gave a short pageant entitled "Follow 
the Gleam." The stage was appropriate- 
ly decorated with symbols and lights, 
conveying the true spirit of these two 
Christian organizations. The main theme 
of this pageant was to challenge reli- 
giously all phases of college life. The 
cast was as follows: 

Y. W. Representative — Ruth Coble. 

Y. M. Representative — Stewart Wer- 

Spirit of the "Y" — Mildred Christian- 

Students — Clyde Mentzer, Frances 

Social Life— Flo Grimm, Warren 

Athletics — Ruth Garner, Samuel Ul- 

Music — Mildred Nye, Allan Ranck. 

Devotional Life — Sophia Morris, Paul 

Art — Miriam Book. 

Self Support — Harry Zech. 

Faculty Advisors — Mrs. P. A. W. Wal- 
lace, R. R. Butterwick. 

This was followed by a short period 
devoted to showing slides of the Holy 
Grail. Miss Kathryn Witmer concluded 
the program with a well performed organ 

Following the exercises in the chapel, 
the entire faculty and student body col- 
lected in the Alumni Gymnasium where 
several sociable hours were spent in old 
and new students becoming acquainted. 



(Continued from Page One) 

attended the "Freshman Melting Pot," 
while the young men joined in a "Fresh- 
man Fellowship." Both were meetings of 
a get-acquainted nature. Self-introduc- 
tion was a feature, along with songs and 
short talks. Prof. Stokes of the Business 
Department of the college was the speak- 
er for the meeting of the boys. 

The annual opening banquet for new 
students was held on Thursday, Septem- 
ber 15, at 6:00 o'clock, with the faculty 
and their wives in attendance. The pro- 
gram for this was somewhat shorter than 
in other years, but was a success not- 
withstanding. Everyone enjoyed the live- 
ly singing under the direction of Prof. 
Rutledge, of the Conservatory faculty. 

Climaxing the events of the week for 
Freshmen, the Y. M.-Y. W. hike was held 
on Friday, September 16, at 5:30 o'clock. 
The company hiked out to the grove 
near the Hill Church. Rev. and Mrs. 
J. Owen Jones and Prof, and Mrs. V. 

Earl Light accompanied the group as 
chaperones and assisted in the program. 
The time was spent playing games and 
roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. 
A short program in charge of the so-

Higgins, Thomas J., B.S. in Ed., Ex- 
celsior, Pa. 

Hostetter, J. Mark, A.B., Annville, Pa. 

cial committee of the Y. W. and Y. M. | Houtz, Lester S., B.S., East Berlin, Pa. 

C. A., Kathryn Mowrey and Chester 
Goodman, included speeches from the 
chaperones, presidents of the Y's, and 
representatives of the four classes. The 
group was especially favored with a 
group of musical numbers by Dale Roth, 
a new member of the Sophomore class. 
Enjoyment of the hike was made supreme 
by the fine weather and beautiful moon. 

In summary it might be said of the 
Freshman period that everything in the 
power of those in charge was donen to 
make things easy for the new student, 
and to make Lebanon Valley a real home 
in spite of its strangeness.

About thirty me:i were present at the

Candidates may still apply. The person- 
nel of the college band will not be 
choren for two or three weeks, until the 
cader has become acquainted with the 
ability of the players. The position of 
hum major is still to be filled. If there 
is anyone on the campus who has done 
work of this type, he is urged to see the 
eader, Mr. Edward Rutledge. 

To fulfill the needs of the large enter- 
in?; class, Mr. Rutledge made a trio to 
New York City last Saturday and pur- 
:ba=ed quite a number of new instru-

that the quality of the instruments of our 
music department is second to none in 
the country. Some of these instruments 
are available for use in the college band. 
The instruments which Mr. Rutledge has 
just purchased are: Three trumpets, two 
cornets, two altos, one French horn, one 
baritone, a trombon°, a flute and a tuba.

Lebanon Valley Defeats Muhlenberg 6-0; 
Williams Scores Winning Touchdown 


Mules Threaten In Final Period; 
Lebanon Valley Misses Other 
Chances To Score 

Led by Charlie Rust, sophomore quar- 
terback, Lebanon Valley upset the pre- 
game dope last Friday night by scoring 
an impressive 6-0 victory over Coach 
George Holstrom's Muhlenberg "Mules" 
under the lights of Muhlenberg field 
down in Allentown. The Mylinmen 
showed a complete reversal of form from 
their playing in the State game a week 
ago and it was only a quick tightening 
up of the Muhlenberg line on more than 
one occasion that prevented more Leba- 
non Valley scores. 

Lebanon Valley, who went into the 
game a decided underdog following the 
ules' brilliant showing in holding La- 
ayette to a 6-0 score a week ago, scored 
e only touchdown of the game early in 
he third period. After holding Muhl- 
nberg for downs, Lebanon Valley took 
he ball on the 50 yard line and from 
ere went over for the only score of the 
game, after a brilliant march through the 
Berg line interspersed with two beautiful 
passes. A pass, Rust to Feeser, was good 
for 20 yards, and then a short pass, Rust 
to Feeser, saw the latter run ten more 
yards. A forward pass added five more 
and then, with the ball on the ten yard 
stripe, Williams came around right end 
on a reverse from Whiting and went 
over for a touchdown. 

Muhlenberg came back with a desper- 
ate rally in the closing minutes of the 
game, taking the ball up to the eight yard 
line, only to have the Lebanon Valley 
defense tighten, take the ball and im- 
mediately kick out of danger. The 
Mules came back with a desperate pass- 
ing attack but the game ended without 
any more scoring. 

First Quarter 
Muhlenberg received on her own 33 
and after no gain on two plays punted 
to Rust on the L. V. 40 yard stripe. 
Whiting made two and a pass, Rust to 
Feeser, was good for 18 and a first down 
°n the 20. Whiting made 7 around right 
e nd and Light made another first down 
°n the 8 yard mark. Here the Mule of- 
fense tightened and held L. V. for downs 
with one yard to go for a touchdown. 
Muhl enberg punted to her own 30. Fee- 
se r made 3 through left tackle and then 
a n incompleted pass over the goal gave 
Muhlenberg the ball on her own 20 yard 
pile. The Mules made a first down and 
*en, after losses on two plays, punted 
L- V. on her 35. The punt was re- 
turned by Rust to Evanosky who ran 25 
^rds before being downed on his own 
^ yard line. Bloom immediately punted 
° Ve r the Lebanon Valley goal giving 
**■ V the ball on her own 20 yard line, 
a loss of 2 yards, Rust punted to 


own 40 yard line. The Mules start- 

e< ^ drive which netted two first downs 
a nd was stopped when Light intercepted 
a Berg pass on the 14 yard mark and 
j^ a n it 23 yards to his own 37 yard line. 
l ght gained 3 and Whiting 4 yards 
r °ugh the line and the quarter ended

Next week LA VIE COLLE- 
GIENNE will install a contributors' 
box in the Ad Building. It is hoped 
that the students will take advantage 
of this innovation and contribute to 
the columns of this paper. In the 
past the staff has not received much 
assistance, in the way of copy, from 
the student body. This box we hope 
will brook the psychological obstacle 
which we believe to have prevented 
people from giving us any material 
whatsoever. Among the contributions 
which we would like to receive are 
those of a literary nature, book re- 
views, poems, essays and constructive 
editorials. Reportorial articles, as they 
are the work of the staff, would natu- 
rally be superfluous, though at times 
welcome especially when a member of 
the staff cannot be present at an 
event. Articles should be signed as an 
evidence of good faith, although if 
requested we will not print the name 
of the contributor. Also, it is hoped 
that the student body will not use this 
opportunity to grind axes. Column 
work, depending upon content, is also 

Readers Club Has 
First Meeting of 
1932-33 Season 


M embers Summarize Summer's 
Reading; Discuss New 


There are five senior public school 
music students who travel to Hershey 
each day, for practice teaching. Miss 
Gillespie takes the group to Hershey in 
her car. Th^ students have spent the 
time since school opened observing the 
regular teachers' work, but will begin ac- 
tual teaching in a week or two. The 
seniors who are going to Hershey are: 
Misses Kathryn Lutz, Virginia Thrush, 
Margaret Sharp, Regina Oyler, and Mr. 
Ted Walker. 

The first meeting of the Readers Club 
was held on Tuesday evening at the 
home of Dr. Wallace. The president, 
"Babe" Earley, gave a short address of 
welcome to the new students who were 
present. He explained that the purpose 
of the club is to keep up to date on cur- 
rent literature and to become acquaint- 
ed with the literature of foreign coun- 
tries. This year the club aims to attend 
at least one good play in some nearby 
city and to bring to the campus some 
lecturer of note. 

Mr. Earley then introduced the first 
speaker of the evening, Mae Fauth. In 
a very clear and entertaining manner 
she discussed the plot and style of Dos- 
toievsky's "Crime and Punishment." Af- 
ter a few comments by other members of 
the club, Katherine Witmer reviewed 
"Obscure Destinies" by Willa Cather. 

Miss Myers then told the club about 
several books she had read over the sum- 
mer. Three plays, "Mourning Becomes 
Electra," "The Barretts of Wimpole 
Street" and "Another Language" were 
then reviewed by Walter Krumbiegel. 
The club was especially interested in this 
discussion since these were the three most 
outstanding plays of last season. 

Upon the insistence of the club, Jane 
Muth told of her experiences as director 
of dramatics at camp this summer. With 
her puppet, Nancy, she told us how they 
were manipulated to perform certain 
acts. She also gave the club many prac- 
tical hints on costuming. 

The meeting was then given over tc. 
suggestions and the making of plans for 
the coming year. After a brief discus- 
sion, during which many suggestions 
were made, the meeting adjourned.

German Club Holds 

Business Meeting 


Five From Lebanon Valley Attend 
Session; Profs. Stevenson and 
Stokes On Committees 

The German Club held its first busi- 
ness meeting of the year last Thursday 
after lunch. Luella Heilman, president 
of the club, presided over the meeting. 
At that time routine business was trans- 
acted and plans outlined for the year's 
activities. It was decided to hold the 
club's opening program on Monday eve- 
ning, Oct. 17, at 7.30 P. M. in Kalo Hall. 
An elaborate program is being arranged 
to which all college students interested 
in German are cordially invited. 

An amendment to the constitution was 
passed and recorded, to the effect that 
the membership dues be reduced to 50 
cents per year. After further discussion 
on several other matters the president 
declared the meeting adjourned. 

Friend of Morales, '32, Writes Regarding Cyclone 

The following article is a letter to 
Kenneth Sheaffer fiom a correspondent 
in Ponce County, Porto Rico, the scene 
of the recent cyclone. Ponce County is 
the residence of Andres Morales, L.V. 

October 6, 1932 

My dear Ken: 

If I felt depressed before, I think I 
now have more reasons for feeling so. 
By this time you must have heard about 
the cyclone that swept this island last 
week. Our poor island, so often called 
"The Island of Enchantment" and "The 
Switzerland of America" can no longer 
brag of its scenery. Thank heavens this 
cyclone confined itself to the northeast- 
ern part so at least something is left. 

This is my third experience with Porto 
Rican cyclones: one in 1928, one last 
year, and now this which was by far the 
most terrible of the three. It is the worst 
experience in my life. No matter how 
hard I try to describe it, I can't put into 
words all that we felt that awful night. 
There's something lacking in the English 
language—there are no words appropriate- 

ly to describe that sinking feeling of 
the stomach, that pounding of the heart, 
that trembling of the knees. 

The wind blew terribly hard. One's 
ears felt funny on account of the pres- 
sure. The roar of the wind was so loud 
that we couldn't detect that of falling 
houses, trees, lamp posts, and such. All 
the roof of our house blew off, two of 
the glass windows were broken by flying 
wood from other houses. This meant 
that we had to open windows on the 
other side to let the wind through. 

All of the family was shut in the room 
just below the bathroom, trusting that 
the tile floor of the latter would stave off 
a tragedy. There was no chance of leav- 
ing the house. Aside from the fact that 
it was pitch dark, there was zinc, wood, 
roofs, and walls blowing by at express 
train speed. To step out against such a 
barrage would be suicide. 

To give you an example, in a house 
of one of our neighbors a wooden board 
about five inches wide cut another board 
about three-fourth of an inch thick on 
the wall of the house. The cut was cross- 

wise — a difficult job with a saw. The 
penetrating board went through the hous" 
wall and then through two sides of a 
wardrobe which was standing inside. 

Nothing that you read about in the 
papers is exaggerated. AH the towns 
were destroyed. In the city proper most 
of the houses were left without roof, or 
ceiling, or were entirely demolished. 
Among the latter were new cement 
houses hardly four years old. Many peo- 
ple were killed and about three hundred 
were seriously injured. There are no 
trees or plants left. You look through a 
window and instead of the beauty of the 
former landscape you see a debris strewn 
and desolate looking expanse. We had 
no water for a week, and we have no 
light yet. I'm writing this letter by the 
light of a candle (1830 style). 

And to make things worse, two days 
after the cyclone the bank here collapsed 
under pressure and there is no money 
for the necessary things. All our cloth- 
ing was spoiled and the linen too. Most 
of our furniture needs remodeling and

Professor Wills, of Western Maryland, 
called to order the tenth annual meet- 
ing of the Debater's Association, of which 
Lebanon Valley is a member. This ses- 
sion was held in the Penn Harris Hotel 
at Harrisburg, Saturday afternoon, Oc- 
tober eighth, at 2:30. Representatives 
of fourteen colleges and universities 
were present. These included: Muhlen- 
berg, Penn State, Temple, Washington 
and Jefferson, and Dickinson. The as- 
sociation includes about twenty-five col- 
leges in the state. Lebanon Valley was 
represented by Prof. Stokes. Dr. Steven- 
son, Minna Wolfskeil, Kathryn Mowrey 
and Charles Kraybill. 

The first act of President Wills was 
the selecting of committees. Dr. Steven- 
son was named on the committee for 
presenting questions for debate. Prof. 
Stokes was named the chairman of the 
nominating committee. 

There followed general discussion. 
The subject of the critic judge was con- 
sidered. At some debates but one judge, 
an expert, is present. Several colleges 
have tried this system and have found 
it interesting. Lebanon Valley conduct- 
ed one debate on this plan, and the re- 
sult was satisfactory. The judge not only 
gives the decision but also defends his 

Professor Wills then inquired if any 
colleges had used the system in which 
the members are divided, so that each 
college has representatives supporting 
both sides of the question. Penn State 
used this plan in its debate with Oxford. 
When this system is used, the audience 
renders the decision. 

Professor Stokes presented the results 
of the nominating committee. The nom- 
inees were: President, Dr. John H. Friz- 
zell of Penn State; vice-president, Prof. 
Wm. Critteden of Temple, and secretary- 
treasurer, Prof. Gilbert of Susquehanna. 
These nominations were approved. 

The following questions for debate 
were presented for approval: 

Resolved that all inter-governmental 
World War debts including reparations 
should be cancelled. 

Resolved that the federal and state 
governments should take action to con- 
trol the electric power, light and heat 
companies of this country.

honor of the two newcomers to the fac-

the remainder of the afternoon. The first 
prize was received by Mrs. Snoke of

prizes were awarded to both the guests 
of honor. There were about forty guests

Anyone who has been here during the 
last three years knows what examinations 
at this school are like. You have to know 
plenty to pass and a lot more to make a 
good grade. Naturally you are not here 
to make marks, but to get an education. 
However, formal checks have to be made 
from time to time to see whether you are 
getting that education or not. If you are 
getting an education the marks will take 
care of themselves. If you are not get- 
ting ah education the marks will show it. 
No man who ever got anything out of a 
course flunked that course. Marks and 
an education are then synonymous in 
that respect, though we are not no naive 
as to assume that each man receives his 
just desserts. But since an education is 
an intangible entity often beyond the 
comprehension of some, and as marks 
are something tangible within the com- 
prehension of all, we are going to sug- 
gest that you try for A's. There are many 
pitfalls in such a venture, but we'll take 
the responsibility of anyone falling into 
them. If you conscientiously try for A's 
we are certain that you will not be among 
those who are weeded out at the end of 
the semester. So let's gee back to the 
books. There's a kick in working with 
ideas, facts, and everything that goes 
with a college education. And if you 
don't get a kick out of them there's 
something wrong somewhere. 



In a time when all business men are 
necessarily conservative it is remarkable 
that our Alma Mater has continued for- 
ward spending money for things essen- 
tial to a progressive institution. The im- 
provements namely more reading space 
in the library and a dietician, were some 
of our extreme needs. We are pleased 
that they have been attended to and ex- 
tend our sincerest thanks to those who 
strive year after year to make a greater 
Lebanon Valley.

Alumni Notes : 

Our graduates en- 
ter various fields 
of endeavor. Fac- 
ulty members 
spend summer in 
divers ways. 

Well, as we go to press, Cupid heads 
the list in the popularity contest with the 
travel bug coming in a close second. By 
the end of the summer, the long trail to 
matrimony is well worn and Lohengrin's 
"Wedding March" is the biggest hit of 
the year. The social columns of the vari- 
ous newspapers gave lengthy write-ups 
when our own Gladys Knaub, '30, be- 
came the bride of John Beattie, '29, and 
when Ruth March, '30, became the bride 
of Willis K. Elliott, the lawyer. Other 
couples on the matrimonial list are Fred 
Christman, '31, and Gladys Rotz, Phila- 
delphia; Homer Allwein, '30, and Mari- 
on Bowman, Lebanon; Mary Hiester, '23, 
and William Parkes, Sharon Hill, Pa.; 
John Beam, '31, and Luella Lehman, 

Europe has been seeing a lot of Leba- 
non Valley this summer. If you don't 
think it's pleasant to meet a campus 
comrade "over there," you'll have to 
argue with Madame Green, and Yvonne, 
'29. They met Miss Moyer on the streets 
of Paris — also Nancy Ulrich, '29. But 
we can't stop with just these four. Others 
who yielded to the wandering urge were: 
Miss Mildred Myers, '30, Miss Mary 
Rank, '30, Miss Helen Hain, '30, Miss 
Kathryn Long, '23, and Mr. William 
Spangler, '31. 

It's not surprising to know that Pro- 
fessor Stokes proudly travelled back to 
Canada this summer, is it? Well, Dr. 
Wallace and Dr. Stevenson followed his 
example, and now they're back to tell 
you that they sincerely enjoyed them- 
selves. Dr. Reynolds found a welcome 
relief from work in his vacation in Indi- 
ana, Ohio, and Lexington, Illinois, where 
he spent some time with relatives. Miss 
Kenyon is still enthusiastic over the plea- 
sant nine weeks she spent at Quannocut 
Senior camp, Newburgh-on-the-Hudson, 
New York, where she is head swimming 
counselor. This camp is maintained 
especially for girl reserves of the Young 
Women's Christian Association all over 
New York City. Dr. Butterwick has 
found a great deal of pleasure in con- 
ducting the Sunday evening religious 
services at Mt. Gretna throughout the 

Dr. Bailey was a little shy at granting 
this La Vie reporter an interview and 
expected us to be content with limiting 
his vacation to Myrtle Beach, N. C. 
That's all very well! But that well known 
little bird is still on the job, and La Vie 
is pleased to announce that Dr. Bailey 
was hard at work in a lumber camp ! ! 
Yes, the secret's out. 

Professors Grimm, Light and Derick- 
son spent a good deal of their time fish- 
ing, and according to the reports, they 
landed some big ones! Good for you, 

Miss Myers, our librarian, spent her 
vacation in Baltimore and Philadelphia. 
In the "city of brotherly love" good 
taste and wisdom took her to hear the 
orchestra in the Robin Hood Dell where 
she heard Alexander Smallens conduct 
Caesar Franck's superb D Minor Sym- 
phony. While in Philadelphia she also 
visited the library of the famous Whar- 
ton School of Finance. 

No, we couldn't leave out the stork! 
He has some news of interest to L. V. C. 
First, congratulations are in order to Dr. 
and Mrs. Struble, to whom a baby boy 
was born this summer. And once again 
Frances Long (Mrs. David Shroyer) '28, 
gave birth to a baby girl, Frances Jane, 
in September. Do you remember her as 
a former May Queen? That's enough 
for Mr. Stork. 

I'm sorry we must slip to the tragic. 
You'll be grieved to hear that Dr. Rob- 
ert Comly, '26, committed suicide by 

leaping from the ninth floor of the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania clinic. Dr. Com- 
ly was a brilliant man and well known 
in Lancaster. Dr. John Marshall, '11, 
an eminent physician in Lebanqn, also 
passed away recently. 

There are quite a few of our gradu- 
ates who have gone to higher institu- 
tions. Bruce Behney, '29, is studying for 
his Ph.D. at Yale. The following have 
received the M. S. degree at Penn S.atc: 
Artz Lick, '29, Russell Fornwalt, '27, 
David Rank, '28, andn Alexander Grant, 
'31, at Harvard Law School. 

Keep on the lookout for familiar faces 
on the campus. There have been quhe a 
few since school began. Here they are: 

Harvey Nitrauer '28, Mildred Lane '29, 
Blanche Cochran '30, Joseph Wood '31, 
Wiilard Trezise '31, Russell Morgan '31,

We'll call this the last minute news

Other marriage items were brought to 
my notice. I was sorry to miss them. 
Miss Violet Walter of Annville, and W. 
Ellsworth Nitrauer '25, were married in 
our own college church. Rev. Jones per- 
formed the ceremony. The couple will 
live in Mt. Joy where Mr. Nitrauer i: 
principal of schools. Miss Elizabeth 
Scott of Albright College and Leroy 
Hain '26, both teachers in Henry Houck 
Junior High at Lebanon, were married 
in Lebanon last June. Mr. Monroe Mar- 
tin '28, and Miss Virginia Parker, Balti- 
more, were married in Baltimore this 
summer. Dr. Wagner was the best man. 
Mr. Martin just received the degree of 
doctor of Philosophy at John Hopkins 
University and is now a research fellow 
in mathematics at Harvard. 

Several alumni have changed their po- 
sitions of teaching. Miss Ethel Lehman 
'22, who exchanged her position of Eng- 
lish teacher at John Harris High School, 
Harrisburg, for a position in a school in 
Lancashire, England; F. Douglas Beide! 
'20, recently resigned as principal of 
Enola to accept a similar position at Mt. 
Union. He succeeded C. C. Smith '12, 
who became principal of schools at 

The Rev. Ira Sankey Ernst '16, has 
been having an extremely successful sea- 
son at the Grace United Brethren Church 
at Carlisle. Rev. Ernst has been the 
church pastor for eleven years and has 
been unanimously invited back. On the 
25th of September the church had a rec- 
ord attendance in Sunday school and the 
Men's Bible School. A splendid offering 
of #512.17 brought down the church 
debt. A very instructive and helpful ad- 
dress was made by Prof. H. H. Shenk, 
head of the history department of Leba- 
non Valley College. 

Some more travel news came my way 
— as a bit of a surprise. Mr. William 
Spangler '31, spent two months touring 
Europe this summer while a student at 
the American People's College in Oetz 
in Tyrol, Switzerland. Mr. Spangler was 
with a group especially interested in so- 
cial and cultural developments abroad. 
This college is being sponsored by a 
group of American educationalists who 
are furthering the idea of giving higher 
education to American young people re- 
gardless of former education. All the 
interests of the trip which are many, the 
tuition, and travel expenses are at no 
more expense than a year's schooling in 
the United States, so if you feel the wan- 
dering urge, inquire about this trip of 
Mr. Spangler. 

I'd say that these alumni and faculty 
members have had a never-to-be-forgot- 
ten summer. Well, some day we'll be 
alumni and faculty members (?) too!

The excellent scholastic rating of our 
college has again been demonstrated by 
the recent placing of it on the first list 
of the Law School of Harvard Univer- 
sity, one of the outstanding law schools 
in this country, which is, in fact, regard- 
ed by many eminent authorities as giv- 
ing the most complete preparation for 
the practice of law. 

The change in rating was brought 
about after a careful consideration of 
our curriculum by the University au- 
thorities before passing on the applica- 
tion of Mr. Alexander Grant, who was 
a graduate in nineteen thirty-one of our 
Department of Business Administration. 
The raising by Harvard of our rating 
will be of particular interest to those en- 
rolled in this department who have the 
study of law as their objective for it 
means that subsequent applicants from 
our college will not be required to rank 
in the first quarter of their class as was 
formerly the case. Another advantage 
to prospective law students lies in the 
fact that other law schools will assuredly 
give credence to our rating with the Law 
School of Harvard University, thus ad- 
mitting them under more favorable con-

Hooks Mylin and his boys journey to 
New York and the Polo Grounds to- 
morrow to play one of the leading grid 
machines of the country. In Fordham, 
we have a powerful machine to conquer, 
a machine which has a terrific offensive 
based on a variation of tricky passing 
and running plays. In Ed Danowsky, 
Coach Cavanaugh has one of the best 
ground gainers in the east and it is up 
to Lebanon Valley's forward wall to stop 
Danowsky. Although not doing the scor- 
ing, it was Danowsky who gained much 
of the ground in the "Rams' " 30-0 
whitewashing which was handed the bur- 
ly Bucknell Bison last Saturday. 

Will Fight for L. V. Against Fordham 

Cavanaugh gave his men a day of rest 
on Monday and has been drilling them 
hard ever since. Lebanon Valley is con- 
sidered a powerful and tricky opponent 
notwithstanding her 27-0 licking by Penn 
State. She showed plenty of power in 
handing the "Mules" their 6-0 reverse 
and should show plenty of power against 
Fordham on Saturday. 

Mylin has been drilling his squad hard 
all week and when the team leaves for 
New York tomorrow they should be in 
the pink of condition. Frankie Boran is 
still out with an injured finger but should 
see some service against the "Rams." 
Charlie Rust is filling Boran's shoes at 
present, being moved up from half to 
quarter in the Muhlenberg game. Rust 
showed plenty of ability in calling sig- 
nals against the Mules so Coach Mylin, 
it appears, has two first-rate quarter- 

I wonder if Fordham remembers the 
scare L. V. C. threw into them the last 
time the two schools met. This happened 
back in 1927 in the days of Piersol and 
Gelbert. Early in the first quarter Pier- 
sol kicked a field goal for Lebanon Val- 
ley, giving the Valiants a 3-0 lead until 
the last quarter when the Fordham of- 
fensive couldn't be stopped and the 
"Rams" pushed over two touchdowns for 
a 12-3 score. 

A large delegation of Lebanon Valley 
rooters are planning to trek to the me- 
tropolis on Saturday to witness the game. 
School spirit is rife at L. V. C. this year 
and the team has a large following at 
every game. However, we would like to 
see an organized cheering section at each 
game. We have the rooters, how about 
the cheers, cheer-leaders?

with the ball Lebanon Valley's on her 
own 44 yard line. Score, L. V. 0, Muhl- 
enberg 0. 

Second Quarter 

Rust punted to Muhlenberg's 5 yard 
line. Muhlenberg immediately punted 
out of bounds on her own 35 yard line. 
Whiting lost 4 and the next play, a pass, 
was intercepted by Horine on the 22 
yard stripe. After an unsuccessful try 
at the L. V. line, Bloom punted to Rust 
°n the 31. Rust punted to Muhlenberg's 
41 and from here on until the end of 
the half the ball stayed in the center of 
the field, neither team being able to pene- 
trate near the goal line. The half ended 
w »th the ball in possession of the Mules 
°n their own 40 yard stripe. Score, L. V. 
°. Muhlenberg 0. 

Third Quarter 

L. V. received on her own 25, lost 5 
011 a reverse and punted to the Mules on 
t^eir own 45. Muhlenberg made a first 
d°wn through right guard and after a 2 
^rd loss and two incomplete passes for 
* 5 yard penalty it was Lebanon Valley's 
°all on the 50 yard line. Whiting cir- 
cled right end for 2, a pass, Rust to 
^ eescr, advanced the ball to the 30 yard 
Ine ; Rust made 2 yards through tackle 
a short pass to Feeser advanced the 
bal I to the 20 yard marker. On the next 

Rust (left), Kandrat (upper right), and Sprenkle (lower right), who will 
wear the Blue and White against the Fordham Rams in New York on Saturday. 
This trio figured prominently in Lebanon Valley's victory over Muhlenberg last 

play Williams ran 20 yards for the only 
score of the game. The extra point was 
blocked. Two more times in this quarter 
Lebanon Valley advanced the ball well 
into Muhlenberg territory but lacked the 
needed scoring drive. Score, L. V. 6, 
Muhlenberg 0. 

Fourth Quarter 

Muhlenberg punted from her own 33. 
On the next play Rust returned the punt 
to the 28 yard line and after two unsuc- 
cessful stabs at the L. V. line and an 
incomplete pass, the Mules punted to 
L. V. on her own 3 1 yard line. Rust 
was downed in his tracks. Stone made 8 
through left tackle. Whiting made 6 for 
a first down. Stone lost a yard and on 
the next play Rust punted to the 50 yard 
line. Horine ran the ball back to the 
37 where he went out of bounds. From 
here Muhlenberg took the ball to the 8 
yard stripe in a succession of line stabs. 
Then an incomplete pass over the goal 
made it Lebanon Valley's ball on her 
own 20. From here on the goal line was 
never in danger. Late in this period 
Muhlenberg opened up a mutual pass- 
ing attack but the game ended without 

the completion of any of the passes for 
a necessary gain. Score, L. V. 6, Muhl- 
enberg 0.

Donmoyer Wins Tennis 
Honors During Summer 

Stars in 4 Tournaments 

Lebanon Valley is proud of the show- 
ing which one of her star athletes made 
this past summer in summer competi- 
tion. Claude Donmoyer, one of the best 
tennis players ever to represent Lebanon 
Valley Colle ge on the clay courts, played 
in four major tournaments this past sum- 
mer and came out first in two of them. 

Donmoyer entered the national inter- 
collegiates at the Merion C. C. in Haver- 
ford and lost in the quarter finals to 
Dick Murphy, seventeenth ranking play- 
er Th the United States. Before going 
down to Murphy, Donmoyer defeated 
the Michigan and North Carolina inter- 
collegiate champion. 

Donmoyer then entered the Lebanon 
County tournament and was victorious 
in the singles and in the doubles. He was 
paired with Joe Albright of Lebanon in 
the doubles. 

He next entered the Lebanon Valley 
open tournament and came off victori- 
ous in the finals by downing Oritsky, the 

Albright star. In his march to the finals 
Donmoyer defeated Kready, the F. and 
M. racket wielder, in straight sets. 

Donmoyer next entered the Susque- 
hanna Valley tournament and advanced 
to the finals, losing in a hard fought 
contest to Rudisil of York. 

Besides entering the above-mentioned 
tournaments, Mr. Donmoyer was an in- 
terested spectator at the National Tour- 
nament which was held at Forest Hills, 
New York. While there he met many of 
the leading stars of the world and re- 
ceived many valuable pointers on the 


The students of Lebanon Valley 
College fittingly closed their celebra- 
tion of the Muhlenberg victory in the 
alumni gymnasium last Monday 
night. A party sponsored by the wom- 
en's Student Government Association 
and the Men's Senate was the gesture 
which closed the celebration. The 
chaperones of the affair were, Ma- 
dame Green, Miss Kenyon, Professor 
Stokes and Professor Bailey. The 
party was a success. 

.... IT'S TIME TO 
Telephone Home! 

OlGHT-THIRTY P. M. is the time to telephone 
Km/ home! 

The day's rush is over; the night's still young. There's 
plenty of time for a newsy, intimate chat. The fam- 
ily's at home, eager to hear your voice. (They'll be 
there for sure if you telephone as a regular habit, the 
same time each week.) 

What is more, it is cheapest to telephone after 8:30 
P. M. That is when the low Night Rates go into effect 
on Station to Station calls. For 45c you can then call 
as far as 140 miles away! 

Yes, it's surprisingly inexpensive, as these typical 
rates show. But be sure you make a Station to Station 
call. Just give your home telephone number to the 
operator and hold the line. If you like, the charges 
can be reversed.

The Life Work Recruits gathered 
in North Hall parlor on Thursday 
••night, October 6, for a short devo- 
tional meeting. Miss Ruth Coble was 
in charge of the group. Mr. K. Mor- 
gan Edwards led in the opening scrip- 
ture and prayer, after which Miss 
Ruth Agen gave the history of the 
writing of the hymn "Jesus, Lover of 
My Soul." The meeting closed with 
the circle of prayer. 

Two ministerial students of the 
group, namely Harry Zech and Paul 
Emenheiser, attended their annual 
conference held at Chambersburg last 
week. Mr. Zech received his annual 
conference license to preach at the 
Chambersburg sessions. 


Quite a few members of the Senior 
class who are preparing for the teaching 
profession have entered upon a new 
phase of their college life, that of prac- 
tice teaching. 

It has become the custom to take the 
Methods course for one-half year and 
to practice teach the other semester. 

Practice teaching is done in the Ann- 
ville High School, the novice teachers 
will observe the teacher, the pupils and 
classroom procedure for a period of a 
few weeks, forty minutes a day and after 
sufficient observation they will conduct 
the recitation themselves. 

The following people are teaching this 

Clements, Percy — Junior History. 
Coble, Ruth — Cicero, Jr. Latin. 
Cowden, Ben — Freshman Civics. 
Eddy, Helen — Junior French. 
Engle, Lucille — Civics. 
Fauth, Mae — Sr. Physics. 
Grimm, Flo — General Science. 
Hartz, Dorothy — Caesar, Soph. Latin. 
Heilman, Luella — German. 
Hemperley, Norman — General Science.

The waiter force has been lending its 
dinner efforts to the composition of fu- 
turistic poetry these fine days. Between 
mouthfuls of food they splutter out 
heartfelt and inspiring lines of tranquil 
verse. Here is one which is directly at- 
tributable to the mouthful of tapioca 
pudding Babe Earley had at the time he 
composed the literary treasure: 

Roses are red, 

Violets are blue, 

Grass is green, 

Can you swim? 

But yet one letter did I find, 
An envelope of linen kind, 
And in it was a slip of white — 
Three guesses. Can you get it right? 
Aw nertz! A bill. 

I wonder if there is anyone more des 
pised than a man who "squeals" on a 
fellow student. In this particular in 
stance it was a freshman telling on two 
of his classmates. He was asked why he 
stayed in his room during the fake mur 
der and he said he had been tipped off 
As if this weren't enough he gave the 
names of the two fellows who were good 
enough to tell him. It wasn't the thing 
to do, Frosh. We like a man who has 
enough gumption to keep his mouth shut 
at all times. Remember that. It will 
help you.

Six and seven, two and a half — 

A combination, it makes me laugh. 

Useless numbers all to me 

For in my box I never see 

A letter. But a solemn dust 

Does settle and its walls encrust. 

Sixty cents — a fortune for an empty 

Which to my heart no joy does bring, 
But only sorrow and a heavy sigh, 
A lonely boy in a lonely world am I. 
No scented lines from maiden fair 
To lift the burdens of my care 
And send me off in ecstasy 
To read sweet lines of fantasy.

We nominate for oblivion: The per 
son who, in Ed 18, said the Battle of 
Tours was in 1492. The freshman who 
thought we should have a bonfire. What 
a brave worker, but then he didn't know 
what a bonfire means to his class. Mary 
March because she has an idea she wants 
to fly. Speed Herre because he has be- 
gun to practice the tug-o-war at this 
early date. 

For an economy program you should 
hear one freshman tell about his trip to 
Washington and his splendid date there. 
You'll have to add a Pennsylvania Dutch 
accent to the story to get the real scream- 
ing funniness of it — but if you can't just 
find out who the person is and ask him 
about it. He's very obliging. It seems 
the young gallant took the girl to one of 
the Washington movie houses but when 
he got there he went in and bought his 
own ticket and let her buy hers after- 
ward. Then when she got within the 
strong arm of the ticket collector, he 
again pursued his amorous intentions. 
After the movie the big splurger went 
along with the rest of the crowd to dine. 
The girl was still his date and they sat 
down and enjoyed their meal together — 
but when it was over our hero seemingly 
only had room enough in his hand for 
his own check and the girl had to carry 
her own to the cashier. He says, though, 
that they had a fine time walking home 
together. And voila, Mr. Hoover, an-

us and make our lives count for God. 
Lastly, we need good will, for Chris-

to reach them because of the good it 
does the soul.

In accordance with the practice pre- 
vailing in many American colleges and 
universities, Lebanon Valley in 1925 be- 
gan to give standardized tests to all stu- 
dents who were beginning their Fresh- 
man year. These tests were given during 
Freshman week. They include a psycho- 
logical or intelligence test and several 
achievement tests. The Ohio State In- 
telligence Test has been used in different 
forms from year to year. This year the 
newest form was given. The scores on 
the various forms have a comparable 
basis. The achievement tests adminis- 
tered to this year's Freshmen were pre- 
pared and standardized by some of the 
ablest research workers in the fields of 
Education and Psychology. 

Ever since the introduction of intelli- 
gence tests into this country there has 
been much objection to them on the 
ground that they do not really measure 
intelligence. The word intelligence, as it 
is commonly understood, includes knowl- 
edge, information, originality, the abil- 
ity to apply acquired facts, and several 
intangible, indefinite, and undefined con- 
cepts. Intelligence tests do not measure 
all of these qualities, although a high 
score on such a test is often an indica- 
tion that such traits are present. All 
that they do determine with a reasonable 
iegree of accuracy is the special ability 
equired to do school work successfully, 
it just how reliable are they in predict- 
a student's ability to do college work? 
xperiments have shown that the result* 
f just one test constitute no infallible 
measure of a student's mental equipment. 

everable variable factors, such as the 
wealth of the individual or the circum- 
stances under which the test is given, 
may make the score somewhat unreliable. 
Experimental research shows that while

The regular meeting of the Life 
Work Recruits was held in North Hall 
parlor on Thursday evening, October 
13. Harry Zech, president of the or- 
ganization, was in charge. The gen- 
eral theme of the program was "The 
Call of God." Thomas May led in 
devotions and the group joined in 
::nging appropriate hymns. 

The Club was very fortunate in se- 
curing Rev. P. B. Gibble, Pastor of 
the First U. B. Church of Palmyra, to 
speak on the subject, "The Origin of 
the Call." In an interesting and en- 
lightening style he pointed out the 
sources of our knowledge of calls 
from God, dividing them into three 
main sections: 1, History of the calls 
of Biblical characters; 2, Calls of 
great historical reformers, and 3, In- 
dividual experiences of calls. His talk 
supported the scripture which says, 
"For many are called, but few ar« 

Following the address, everyone 
joined in the circle of prayer, and the 
meeting was dismissed by Rev. Gibble.

The Sophomores and Freshmen mixed 
it up for the second time this season and 
the sophomores came off victorious 
again. This time the contest was the an- 
nual Soph-Frosh flag rush. The time 
was Thursday afternoon, October 13, at 
4.30 and the sky was overcast. Those 
scrappy underclassmen however were not 
stopped by weather conditions. They 
fought through the rain and in the mud 
for four ten-minute periods without 
either side capturing the coveted flag. 
However, there were some gallant at- 
tempts made by both teams but to no 
avail. Meyer and Ricker were the main- 
stays of the Sophs who were near the 
pole, while Cullather and Pete Kanoff 
seemed to be at their best in the pole 
climbing. For the Frosh, Schmuck did 
gallant work| at the pole, while the 
Gruber brothers, Nieble and others tried 
to climb the pole. 

The fight lasted for nearly an hour 
with no winning results from either 
team. Then in the approaching dark- 
ness the flag was lowered to ten feet 
above the ground and the mud bedecked 
gladiators went at it again. After four 
minutes Konsko of the Sophs was able to 
catch the flag in one hand and thus end- 
ed the good old flag rush until another 
year. The Sophomore team was com- 
posed of Konsko, Meyer, King, Ricker, 
Beaver, Cullather, Palatini, Anderson, 
Hiltner, Houck, Mentzer, Pete Kanoff, 
Dougherty and Floyd. The Frosh had 
as their fighters, Nieble, Rader, Byers,

After each girl was provided with a 
candy stick and a lemon, at North Hall, 
the party set out for the Kreider estate. 
College songs and cheers enlivened the 
hikers on their long walk. When the 
various groups had reached the man- 
sion, Clio, with an impressive Grecian 
ceremony, invoked the blessings of her 
patron goddess, Minerva, for the com- 
ing year. 

A jolly campfire blazing by the pond, 
next attracted the hikers. Here, old Cli- 
onians put on several stunts for the bene- 
fit of the new girls. "Kotty" McAdams

for the clever ballad they sang and per- 
formed. "Minn" Owen, Ruth Coble,

At the psychological moment, when 
appetites had reached a new peak, deli-

Due to the cold weather, Delphian 
could not hold their traditional hike this 
week so Delphian Hall was converted 
into a beautiful Indian camp. 

All the girls sat around the camp fire 
and then a skit, "The White Indian," 
was presented. 

In the front of the stage was the In- 
dian camp. The Indian Chief and a 
few of his men were seated in front of 
the big wigwam talking and to the left 
of the stage was a frontier cabin. 

Dorothy Forry took the part of the 
White Indian who had been stolen when 
a small child and who had now grown to 
a handsome young man. 

The Indians made a raid on the Fron- 
tier cabin and took the beautiful white 
girl, Gem Gemmil, captive. She was 
taken to the Indian camp where she had 
to remain until peace was declared. Af- 
ter meeting the White Indian she real- 
ized that he was the long lost child of 
her foster-mother (Mildred Christian- 
sen). After peace was established be- 
tween the Indians and the Whites, the 
White Indian and the beautiful captive 
were married and of course she was the 
means of again uniting the happy fam- 

An extremely powerful Fordham ag- 
gregation wreaked havoc upon the Blue 
and White at the Polo Grounds on Sat- 
urday. Outweighed but fighting to the 
last, Lebanon Valley bowed to the Rams, 
52-0. The excellent generalship of Char- 
ley Rust was of no avail except for a 
brilliant but short-lived spurt in the third 
quarter. Barthold, Feeser, and Volkins 
gave spirited accounts of themselves but 
then what can a mere football team do 
against a brigade. Another brief moment 
of fire was exhibited by the Valley when 
they held on the four yard line in the 
first few minutes of play. 

First Quarter 

Danowski kicked to Rust who ran the 
ball back to the 25 yard line. After two 
tries for a first down Rust kicked to Mc- 
Dermott on the Fordham 44 yard line. 
Fordham battered the line and passed 
once to reach the 15 yard line only to 
be penalized 15 yards for holding. In- 
terference with the intended receiver of 
a long pass gave Fordham the ball on 
Lebanon Valley's eight yard line. Co- 
whig, Piawlock, and Danowski tried the 
line four times but the Blue and White 
held on the four yard line. Rust kicked 
to his own 36 yard line and in just three 
plays Cowhig plunged over for a goal. 
Danowski kicked the extra point. Stone 
went in for Whiting. Danowski kicked 
to Stone who was stopped on the 22 yard 
line. Feeser made one yard on a delayed 
reverse, Stone made four off right guard, 
Rust kicked to McDermott who came 
back to our 45 yard line. Piawlock made

With our band playing and parading 
in their new uniforms on Saturday, we 
can't help but win the Juniata game. 
We have an idea how well the band 
sounds from hearing them during the 
three pep meetings in the chapel, and 
hearing them play when they had march- 
ing practice, out of doors. 

This aggressive band is always start- 
ing new projects to develop. Their lat- 
est goal is a concert. Much new music 
has been obtained for this affair and re- 
hearsals for it have begun. 

The band will accompany the football 
team to many of the remaining games, 
and will march in all the glory of their 
new uniforms.

This Friday marks the formal open- 
ing of the library halls. No doubt a 
considerable amount of handshaking and 
general politics has made itself manifest. 
The Frosh already has some kind of an 
idea of which society they wish to join. 
However, pause a moment and listen. 
This to the Frosh. A society is what you 
make it, not what they tell you it is. The 
societies start off with a bang and then 
slow up perceptibly. A society aims to 
get quantity, trusting that quality will be 
included. A society, in order to do any- 
thing,, needs money. The societies are 
seldom literary. The societies are now 
the chief social organizations on the 
campus. The societies are the chief po- 
litical machines on the campus. Never- 
theless, with all their faults we urge you 
to join one as they are the only organi- 
zations that are entirely controlled by 
the students. They have drifted far from 
their original purpose but are still worth- 
while organizations. 


This week we play our first home game 
in football. Our opponents will be the 
Juniata Indians. Due, no doubt, to the 
heavy schedule that we play, interest in 
the team has waned to a certain point. 
Our defeat at the hands of the Fordham 
Rams was discouraging. However, con- 
sidering the size and facilities of both 
institutions the fellows did themselves 
credit. They faced one of the strongest 
grid machines in the country, including 
Notre Dame. This Saturday, the story 
is different. We are going to play a 
school in our own class and the chances 
of victory are high. Many will have their 
first opportunity to see our team in ac- 
tion. The team, we are sure, will fight 
to win. And everyone should be on hand 
to see the spectacle. The band, in their 
new uniforms, and greatly enlarged, will 
play the school songs. The Frosh will 
parade. And the rest of us will yell our 
heads off. We are planning to have a 
great afternoon, but need the support of 
each and every member of the student 
body. Come and see a team you can be 
proud of; a band that you can be proud 
of; and even a class of blue-caps that 
you can be proud of! 

The problem of class scraps is becom- 
ing acute. In the last two years fellows 
have been injured more or less severely. 
No one ever emerged without a scar. 
Should this fighting be a spontaneous 
expression of a desire we would have lit- 
tle to say, but we have reliable informa- 
tion that the underclassmen do not wish 
to engage in such encounters. It is then, 
no doubt, the work of the upper classes. 
We do not wish to run counter to tradi- 
tion (hallowed word), but when it nour- 
ishes injuries and advocates activities in 
which a fatality may result, as it already 
has in other colleges we cannot remain 
silent. Something must be done. A sug- 
gestion, if we may be permitted one, 
would be to substitute a less gruelling and 
less hazardous activity. 

In a week or two the underclassmen 
will hold a tug of war. We have seen 
such tugs and have seen the men come 
back with torn hands and bleeding bod- 
ies. If ever any activity ever portrayed 
the farce of tradition it is the tug. Weeks 
are spent in training for this idiotic con- 
test, weeks that, obviously, could be spent 
more profitably. Then the tug and its 
attendant evils. Another suggestion. Al- 
low no one to practice and train. Keep 
the date as secret as possible, and an- 
nounce it suddenly, We promise that 
the affair will not last more then fifteen 
minutes. The digging of holes, of course, 
must be prohibited. In conclusion we 
wish to add that we know whereof we 



No social movement has caught the 
imagination of the students with any- 
thing like the force with which Socialist 
sentiment is sweeping the colleges and 
universities these days. With the college 
year still to open, the National Student 
Committee for Thomas for President 
Clubs reports 120 clubs organized. Paul 
H. Ritterskamp, chairman, makes the 
confident prediction that by Election 
Day 300 clubs will be functioning on 
and near the campuses doing their full 
share to swell the Socialist vote. 

In the midst of the most enthusiastic 
and successful of his several campaigns, 
Norman Thomas has paused to com- 
ment on the great swing to Socialism in 
the universities. 

"Speaking at the district conference 
in Chicago and New York and reading 
about the Maryland students' tour of the 
state has convinced me that students will 
work for Socialism and will help roll up 
a huge Socialist vote in November. And 
by working, I mean not only talking poli- 
tics to friends or voting in the national 
student poll Oct. 19th — both of which 
are important — but I mean also holding 
street corner meetings, ringing doorbells, 
distributing literature, sponsoring poli- 
tical rallies, getting publicity, and not 
being afraid to do the thousand-and-one 
petty jobs that must be done if a vigor- 
ous campaign is to be waged. 

"Nor does the work end with the cam- 
paign. For, if a strong Socialist move- 
ment is to be built — and we know it will 
be built — then every Thomas-for-Presi- 
dent chapter must afterward become a 
Socialist or an L. I. D. Club in order 
to carry on the struggle for the achieve- 
ment of Socialism in our Time." 

Thomas' hopeful statement is based 
on concrete activity by the clubs. The 
colleges and universities have been di- 
vided into 17 districts, with organizers 
at work in 14 of them. Glen Trimble 
operates from Boston; Harold Luxem- 
berg from New York City; Joel Seid- 
man from Baltimore; James R. Henson, 
Lynchburg, Va.; Walter Ruetner, De- 
troit; H. Clyde Reeves, Midway, Ky.; An- 
drew Juvinall, Chicago; Isaac Hoffman, 
Minneapolis; Glenn Griffith, Grant, 
Neb.; Jerome Paulson, Helena, Mont.; 
Stephen J. Christopher, Pullman, Wash.; 
and Gordon McWhirter, Berkeley, Cali- 

Behind this systematic organization 
plan, there is daily fruitful activity. 
Twenty-six states have state chairmen. 
District 8, Illinois and Wisconsin, has 
held a convention with 36 delegates from 
14 colleges. Christopher has sent a call 
to all Washington institutions to mobi- 
lize. Reeves and the University of Ken- 
tucky Club have organized a party local 
in Lexington and held the first Socialist 
rally in many years. West Virginia's 
state chairman, Elizabeth Franklin, has 
made contact with 14 colleges. Roland 
White, University of Iowa, is one of the 
many who have had articles on Thomas 
printed in their college publications. 
Iowa's state chairman, Al Coons, has 
called a state convention for Iowa City. 
The New York district Conference held 
an enthusiastic convention at the Rand 
School. District Organizer Ruether has 
started seven clubs. Merlen Smelker, Ot- 
terbein College, has organized not only 
a club, but a Socialist party local with 
gratifying publicity. University of Min- 
nesota students have made a Minnesota- 
to-New York automobile propaganda 

Perhaps the most stirring record thus 
far belongs to the Johns Hopkins club in 
Baltimore. Joel Seidman, Hannah Bie- 
miller, Elizabeth McBing, William Seid- 
man, Sarah Drager and Leo Alpert put 
on a six-day tour of Western Maryland 
in the "Red Special," and equipped auto 
truck, and came back to Baltimore with 
five Socialist locals organized, yards of 
publicity in the daily papers and thir- 
teen meetings held. 

The national committee has plans 
which will keep the clubs busy up to 
Election eve — and after. Oct. 5th will 
be national rally day and button day, 
when meetings on every campus and a 
Thomas and Maurer button on every 
student will be the order of the day. 
Oct. 12th will be devoted to symposiums 
in which Socialist student speakers will 
take on any and all comers with the 
temerity to speak for either of the two 
old parties. On Oct. 19th straw votes 
will be taken to test student political 
sympathies. Oct. 26th is the day set down 
for converting of the Thomas-for-Presi- 
dent clubs into permanent year-round 
Socialist clubs. On this day plans will 
be made for the heavy literature distri- 
bution and watching at the polling places 
co see that the votes cast are honestly 
counted and not stolen. 

Robert Morss Lovett, Professor of 
English Literature at the University of 
Chicago, commenting upon the increased 
interest and participation of students in 
public affairs says it is "the most hopeful 
sign in college education today; that the 
present state of the labor movement in 
the United States makes it necessary for 
college men and women with their basis 
for organization and unified action, to 
take the leadership in the movement for 
social justice and a new social order . . 
The promise of a better world can be 
given only by the youth of America, who 
in working and voting for the Socialist 
party in 1932, will express their unalter- 
able conviction that the state should be 
an instrument of social welfare, not of 
special privilege, and that individualism 
should be measured by genuine coopera- 
tion for the common good, not by supre- 
macy in predatory gain." 

In conclusion he speaks of those pro- 
phets of cynicism and despair who feel 
that they contribute to the decaying so- 
cial order by voting for Hoover or 
Roosevelt and says, "You are not inter- 
ested in the finish, but in the beginning 
of a new world and a new life for your- 
selves and your fellows. That beginning 
is Socialism. And so I say to you young 
college people, vote for Thomas and 
Maurer, and vote for them as good So- 
cialists, both they and you."

President Hoover carried his cam- 
paign into the west last week and made 
his first speech in his native state of 
Iowa. It looks as if he is making a bid 
for the farmers' vote in an attempt to 
win back the west, a section of revolting 
farmers who regard the depression as 
only a climax of their previous hard 

Up in Albany the other day there was 
a handshake which was felt throughout 
the nation. Former Governor Alfred E. 
Smith of New York clasped hands with 
Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt. The 
result of this handshake so far has been 
the defeat of Tammany Hall in the gov 
ernatorial nominations and who knows 
what it might mean in the coming presi- 
dential election. 

President Machado of Cuba placed 
Havana under martial law after Cle- 
mente Vasquez Bello, president of the 
senate, and three other prominent opp . 
sitionists were assassinated by terrorists 
who made their escape. 

Even if Japan hasn't saved her f ace 
she certainly has kept her cheek. 

An empire was shattered recently, an 
empire of utilities belonging to Samuel 
Insull, which covered thirty states of the 
U. S. A. and branched off into many 
foreign countries. "At the peak of his 
career Samuel Insull was master of the 
vastest utility system ever controlled by 
one man," writes Walter Fitzmaurice in 
the Chicago Tribune. Today he is an 
exile, old and broken, with his power in 
the hands of receivers. Whatever the 
cause of his fall, let it be an economic 
lesson in the future and a warning 
against so much individual power. 

La Vie Collegienne takes this op- 
portunity to extend the sympathy 
of the student body, faculty and 
of La Vie, to Robert Anderson, 
whose father died recently. 

In getting back to the educational, a 
"Depression College" has been formed 
down in Virginia by Dr. A. C. C. Hill, 
former professor of economics in Spring- 
field College. The basic idea of the col- 
lege is simplicity. The students do all 
the work in the college and pay their in- 
clusive fee of $250 in this way. The fac- 
ulty will be unpaid but will receive room 
and beard. The question is, will it work? 

Twenty-five Minnesota farm strike 
pickets stopped a U. S. mail truck on its 
way to St. Paul last Monday. We don't 
know if it was really a mistake of the 
farmers, or if they were protesting the

Columbia University has passed a new 
rule which forbids foreign students ad- 
mitted to this country on a non-quota 
basis to engage in vacation or part-time 
employment. It seems rather hard on 
the foreigners but it seems to be the rule 
of Columbia to take care of her own 
home students first. 

With a view of making the foreign 
service truly republican Foreign Minister 
Luis de Zuluetta of Spain either removed 
or shifted 46 high officials in the diplo- 
matic corps in order to carry the ideal 
of the Spanish republic to her sister re- 
publics in South America. A shipload 
of monarchists including two cousins of 
former King Alfonso and many others 
charged with aiding the recent royalist 
uprising, left Cadiz for exile in North 

After the parliament of Finland 
passed a bill providing amnesty for mi- 
nor offenders against the repealed pro- 
hibition law, President Svinhujord par- 
doned 20,000 persons imprisoned for 
various liquor offenses. Most of the of- 
fenders were persons who had been freed 
and who could not pay their fines be- 
cause of the depression, and the cabinet 
expedited their release in order to re- 
lieve conjestion in the prisons. 

The depression has done a lot for the 
nation in a healthy way. Dr. Benjamin 
Goldberg, professor of medicine at the 
University of Illinois, told the American 
Congress of Physical Therapy at New 
York that the depression has "given the 

people the greatest blessing of life 

health." Our birth rate fell off some 
5.8 per cent in 1931, also due t® the

only 14,000 out of 58,000 vote3, captured

The History Club held its first 
meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 18, at 1:0 
P. M. At that time a reorganization 
was effected and the following were 
elected as officers: President, DeWi« 
Essick, Vice-President, Kathryn Mo*- 
rey, Secretary-Treasurer, Arline Heck- 

At the same time the club laio 
plans for future meetings and activi 

a ufi'M be 

ties. An intensive program wi« 

presented, and it is hoped that tnaV ^ 

of the new students as well as the o 

will take advantage of this opp° rtU 

nity to learn about vital present 

affairs. All in all, a most intere 
and successful year is predicted. 





We had one consolation in Saturday's 
game at any rate. Major Frank couldn't 
u se his third team throughout as he ex- 
acted to. He tried them in the third 
period but they came out soon afterward 
jn favor of the first string men. The 
good old Blue and White fooled Mr. 
Cavanough there. 

And now Juniata. Coach Mylin said 
he couldn't comment on the game. 
"They're a good club," remarked Mr. 
Mylin- "They were good last year too," 
he was told. "Yes" answered the coach, 
"they were. Don't think that we were 3 1 
points better than they. It was just one 
of those games where everything goes for 
one team. We were lucky." 


But we can't help but feel that Juniata 
will be chicken for the boys. The Hunt- 
ingdon crew was humbled 20 to by 
Drexel on Saturday. So can you blame 
us for planting the green on the good 
old Annville eleven? 

The band will be there too. It will be 
a proud day for Professor Rutledge and 
his boys and it will be a proud day for 
the student body. Everyone likes the 
band — they have to like good music — 
and even were it a choice to hear them 
or the U. S. Marine Band I know 500 
L. V. students would hear the Blue and 
White maestro with his boys. 

Bad news for us is that Frankie Boran 
will probably be out of the lineup until 
the Albright game. There is a possibility 
that he will play some of the Mt. St. 
Mary's game but hardly in any before. 
The team misses Frankie's generalship 
on the white markers in spite of the fact 
that Rust has shown himself a fully cap- 
able and heady man. 

Bethlehem steel field has been recon- 
ditioned. That is to say that a new layer 
of turf was placed on it. Whether or not 
the gridiron has been softened up we'll 
learn from the boys on Saturday. 

Don't forget to come to the game Sat- 
urday. We want a record crowd. Bring 
all the noise makers you can find in 
town. And you cheerleaders get some 
pep into your systems (be it instilled or 
distilled). We'll rock Lebanon with our 
cheers. See you at the game! 

German Club Discusses 
Work of Sudermann 

The German Club presented its open- 
in g program Monday evening, October 
seventeen, in Kalo Hall. Louella Heil-

0n e of his novels, "Frau Sorge." Mae 

Fauth criticized one of Sudermann's 

p ' a ys. Current poetry was discussed by 

William Speg. Emma Fasnacht told 

some jokes in German. Miss Leitzau

Volkins spoiled the kick again. Kandrat 
went in for Smith. Lebanon Valley re-

to Dougherty was good for 50 yards and 
a touchdown. Harlow finally made an 
extra point. Lebanon Valley received 
again and Rust punted the ball back. A

Fordham kicked off. Rust punted to 
midfield after two plunges gained but a 
yard. The Maroon took its third fifteen

Lebanon Valley made its most aggressive 
attack. Rust threw a bad pass. Patrizio 
came in for Stone. Rust made a first 
down. Patrizio caught a pass from Rust 
but fumbled. Smith recovered for an- 
other first down. Another pass from 
Rust to Patrizio netted seven yards. Fee- 
ser gained a yard through the line. Rust's 

pass was incomplete and Fordham took 
the ball. The Leb anon defense strength- 
ened and after an exchange of punts the 
Ram first team again went in on Leba- 
non's 29 yard marker. A bad pass from 
center brought it back to Lebanon's for- 
ty. The visitors gained 15 yards on an- 
other Ram penalty. Danowski kicked to 
the 20 yard line. Rust passed from be- 
hind the goal lines to Williams who went 
to his own 28-yard line. After Rust's 
punt McDermott executed a beautiful 25

one test may not be entirely reliable, a 
series of tests forms a valuable criterion 
of what a given individual can accom- 
plish. The intelligence test is by no 
means perfect, but it is the most depend- 
able instrument yet devised for the deter- 
mination of general mental ability. The 
scores on the«e tests, if not applied too 
literally, have considerable prognostic 
value. The teacher who compares intelli- 
gence scores and achievement should at 
lease take into account the variable of 
individual industry or application. 

The achievement tests were designed 
to measure the knowledge of certain sub- 
jects, such as English, science and mathe- 
matics, which the student has acquired 
in high school. Such tests are valuable 
because they show the pupil's weak and 
strong points in each subject and also 
indicates in general how well he has ap- 
plied himself to these studies. The re- 
sults of achievement tests are useful in 
predicting what the students will do in 
college because there is a relatively high 
correlation between success in college and 
success in high school. At present, Pro- 
fessor Grimm is preparing a profile chart 
for each Freshman on the basis of the 
scores earned on these tests. Each indi- 
vidual's chart will show graphically just 
where he stands with respect to the other 
members of the class and in what sub- 
jects he is likely to do the best work. 

The mediam for the class of 1936 on 
the intelligence test is 96. This is eight 
points higher than the norm for the 
state of Ohio where the median for 
Freshmen in the colleges and universi- 
ties is 88. This would seem to indicate 
that the class of 1936 is somewhat more 
capable of undertaking college work 
than the average Freshman class in Ohio 
educational institutions. 

The following tabulations show the 
distribution of the scores. It is interest- 
ing to note that the median for the 42 
women who took the test is seventeen 
points higher than that for the 75 men. 



Student Teachers Attend 
Lebanon Co. Institute 

Many of our student teachers attended 
the Lebanon County Institute held at the 
Lebanon High School, Wednesday, Oc- 
tober 12, 1932. 

Dr. Stanley L. Krebs, nationally known 
educator from New York City, addressed 
the teachers on the subject "The Art of 
Living." Of all the fine arts, the art of 
"living" is the greatest. 

He delivered this address in the morn- 

Seven other speakers lectured to the 
teachers in sessions of the various groups. 
Miss Jane Wyland, associate professor 
of education, Pennsylvania State Col- 
lege, spoke to junior high school teach- 
ers on "The Junior High School Home 
Room." Miss Helen C. Goodspeed, of 
the Philadelphia public schools, spoke to 
the home economics department instruc- 
tresses on "Adapting Home Economics 
Teaching to Present Day Economics and 
Social Conditions." 

Dr. Ralph F. Smith, of the department 
of public instruction, substituted for M. 
C. Rosenberry and spoke to the music 
supervisors on "Music." 

Miss Helen Purcell, of the department 
of public instruction, spoke to the ele- 
mentary teachers on "Common Sense 
Methods for Teaching;" Dr. Anderson, 
a member of the faculty at West Chester 
State Teachers College, spoke on "Arith- 
metic in the Elementary Grades," to the 
mathematics instructors. Dr. Chester M. 
Sanford, another nationally known edu- 
cator of Chicago, Illinois, spoke to the 
entire assemblage on "The Teacher, The 
Adviser," and Dr. F. Theodore Struck, 
of Pennsylvania State Teachers College 
spoke on "Shop" to the male instructors. 

In the afternoon the speakers also ad- 
dressed the various groups again. 

The meeting proved to be of a very 
great value, especially to the new teachers.

The annual Y. W. C. A. recognition 
service for the new girls was held Sun-

North Hall. Mildred Christiansen, vice- 
president of the association, conducted 
the meeting. She explained the meaning 
of the Y. W. C. A. with the assistance of 
Kathryn Mowrey, Sophia Morris, Flo 
Grimm, and Charlotte Weirick. Each 
spoke of the significance of the initial 
letter of the Y. W. C. A. 

Miriam Owen and Mildred Nye sang 
a duet, "I Would Be True." Then each

A good attendance marked the 
regular Student Prayer Meeting held 
in Philo Hall last Wednesday, Oct. 
12, at 6:45 P.M. Mr. Allan Ranck, 
co-leader of the movement, presided. 
Ray Johnson had charge of devo- 
tions, while as an added feature Mr. 
Ranck read a poem entitled "Na- 
ture," by John Galsworthy. 

Mr. Paul Emenheiser furnished the 
thought for the evening on the sub- 
ject, "The One Thing Needful". He 
blamed the confusion of present 
times upon the collapse of our ma- 
terial resources, and the lack of 
spiritual experience in general. He 
spoke of the curse of materialism, a 
mighty machine which grinds away 
man's finest qualities. Mr. Emen- 
heiser concluded his talk by saying 
that the "one thing needful" is the 
call to spirituality in order to live a 
life of joy and satisfaction.

these affairs. In doing this, they not only 
draw the attention of the distant towns 
to the college, but they also let the town 
know what is being done at our school. 

The college alumni and members of 
the faculty were the real instigators of 
this service. The alumni believed the 
school was not well enough known; they 
suggested to adopt this College Press 
Service in order to keep the alumni and 
the outside world posted on the happen- 
ings on our campus. 

The staff has been chosen by the fac- 
ulty. It is composed of students on the 
campus who are interested in journal- 
ism. They have been selected on their 
special merit in this field. The staff is as 

L. P. Clements, editor-in-chief; Arline 
Heckrote, Marion May, Henry Palatini, 
Boyd Sponaugle. 

This College Press service has already 
accomplished much. They have achieved 
results. We are sure that in the future 
they will do big things for our college. 
They are to be commended on their re- 
markable and worthwhile work. 

On Tuesday evening, October 18, a 
group of people, representing Lebanon 
Valley College, attended the concert of 
Rosa Ponselle at the Rajah Theatre in 

Miss Ponselle, who is one of the fore- 
most of female singers and prima donna 
soprano of the Metropolitan Opera 
Company, delighted her audience, both 
with her beautiful selections and with 
her dainty appearance. 

The concert on Tuesday evening was 
the first of a series of five concerts — the 
Haage Subscription Concerts. This year 
is the celebration of the twenty-fifth an- 
niversary of the Haage Concerts and a 
most outstanding program has been ar- 

On November 16, Fritz Kreisler, the 
violinist, will be at Reading. Roland 
Hayes, the famous negro tenor and in- 
terpreter of songs, will be there on De- 
cember 8. The brilliant pianist, Vladi- 
mir Horowitz, will play on January 9. 
The last program will be on January 30. 
The Boston Symphony Orchestra of 110 
members, with Serge Koussevitsky, the 
conductor, will make its first appearance 
in Reading. 

Among the people from Annville who 
heard Miss Ponselle were: 

Dr. and Mrs. Bender, Mr. and Mrs. 
Rutledge, Miss Gillespie, Miss Moyer, 
Mrs. Green, Miss Myers, Professor Camp- 
bell, Professor Stokes, Misses Lutz, Brick- 
er, Oyler, Thrush, Ely, Sharp and 


Kalo will formally open its hall tc 
the freshman this Friday evening. A_n 
interesting program has been or, 
ranged which includes a vocal solo by 
Mr. Mentzer, an address by an old 
Kalo, Mr. Mills, '04, a few piano 
selections by Mr. Koch, a brass duet 
by Messrs. Barnes and Schrope, some 
wit by "Ike" Buzzell and an address 
of welcome by Mr. Krumbiegel, the 
president of the society. After the 
session refreshments and smokes will 
be served. All freshmen are cordially 
invited to attend.

The regular Sunday evening Vesper 
service conducted by the Y. M. C. A 
was held on Sunday at 5.45 P. M. i n 
the "Y" room. The meeting was opened 
with a song service, which was followed 
by devotions, in charge of Ray Johnson. 

The speaker of the evening was Allan 
Ranck. He chose as a subject "The New 
Reformation," gathering material for his 
talk from Sherwood Eddy's book "New 
Challenges to Faith." Mr. Ranck first 
spoke of the changing ideals and 
thoughts of present times. He went on 
to explain Eddy's ideas of this new re- 
formation, which has these as its charac- 
teristics: chat it is true to science and 
psychology, that it combines a vital and 
personal religion with social religion, 
and that it has a dynamic Idelete spiritual 

Following these excellent remarks, 
there was a brief discussion. Then the

Blue and White Defeat Juniata Indians; 

Stone Scintillates In 19-0 Victory 


"coring In All But Final Period 
Lebanon Valley Again Wins 
From Juniata 

Lebanon Valley once again tamed the 
Indian war whoop to a plaintive wail at 
Bethlehem steel field. Thirteen points 
from Lee Stone's shoulders and toe and 
from Smith's agility was the cause 
of Juniata's sorrow, 19-0. 

Petty, fiery little halfback for the 
Huntingdon horde, tried hard to charge 
his team to victory but the aerial attack 
of the Indians' failed to support his gal- 
lant field playing. Stone was the indi- 
idual star for the Blue and White, with 
tusi, Feeder and Smith playing out- 

First Quarter 

Kandrat kicked to Wenger who was 
stopped by Feeser on the 15 yard mark- 
Three line plays netted only eight 
ards and Wenger punted. A bad pass 
rom center lost six yards for Lebanon 
alley and Rust punted beautifully, 
ook fumbled the kick and Rose recov- 
ed for the Blue and White. Juniata 
-eld valiantly on their four inch line, 
id then got off a bad kick to Barthold 
the 20 yard marker. A. short pass, 
'ust to Feeser, gained a yard. Rust went 
round end for 5 yards. Kandrat made 
it first down with a goal to go. Whiting 
crashed the line for five and Feeser 
umbled on the next play but Smith re- 
overed for Valley across the poal line, 
ith missed the extra point. 
Whitman took the kick from Smith 
d was downed by Feeser on the 30 
»rd stripe. After several line plays. 
Wenger punted to the Blue and White 
5 yard line. Whiting hammered the 
ne, a pass failed, and Rust kicked. 
Cook made two yards off tackle. Petty 
led three through the line. Lebanon 
alley off-side gave Juniata its initial 
rst down. Line plays failed to gain 
nd Wenger punted to Rust who was 
pped in his tracks. Rust kicked back

New York, N. Y. (NSFA) — A drive 
has recently been instituted, according 
to Mr. Hans Stefan Santesson, president 
of the League of Youth for India, to 
organize all Gandhi sympathizers in the 
United States for the purpose of spread- 
ing his teachings. 

"This is an effort to unify the be- 
lievers in the Cause of India, who, 
united, will represent powers as yet only 
too latent. It is an appeal to the love 
of justice, inherent in American youth — 
an appeal which cannot fail", said Mr. 
Santesson. "All sympathizers in the high 
schools and colleges, whether pacificists, 
or from other reasons, are urged to send 
in their names and addresses to the Na- 
tional Headquarters at 31 Union Square, 
New York."

Commerce and 

History Clubs 

The Commerce Club and History Club 
a d dinner together Thursday evening, 
October 20. Each club was formed to 
keep in touch with present day activity, 
s o they have in part a common ground. 
William Barnes, president of the Com- 
merce Club, introduced the speaker, Dr. 
H - H. Shenk. 

Dr. Shenk's talk combined history and 
commerce. He gave an interesting pic- 
tUr e of the early modes of travel and 
tr ansportation. Many ancedotes gave his 
ta Ik a personal touch. Dr. Shenk told of 
a conversation with the son of the engi- 
ne er who built the tunnel north of Cle- 
0r »a. This man is almost one hundred 
^ e ° : " old. He lives in Lebanon. Then 
r - Shenk spoke of General Washing- 
t0n = trip through this part of Pennsyl- 
^ n >a. Harrisburg was so small then that 
as hington walked through it and 
ar ound 1C in several hours. These and 
° th er notes made the history of this 
rt of Pennsylvania very interesting. 

Friday evening, October 21, 8 o'clock, 
Kalozetean Literary Society held its first 
formal opening of this year in Engle 

Walter Krumbiegel as president 
opened the meeeting. Mr. Warren Ment- 
zer as chaplain gave a short scripture 
reading and prayer. The president then 
gave a speech of welcome to the guests 
and members of Kalo. Mr. Krumbiegel 
gave a vivid sketch of the history of the 
society. He briefly outlined what Kalo 
represents, what it has done, and its 
plans for the coming year. 

A program was presented by members 
of the club for the freshmen. Mr. War- 
ren Mentzer was first on the program. 
He sang a bass solo, 'Asleep In the 
Deep," which he rendered so well in 
Kalo Minstrel last year. He was accom- 
panied on the piano by "Earnie" Kock. 

Mr. "Earnie" Kock then rendered 
two ultra-modernistic piano selections 
with excellent feeling and technique. 
The first number was "Meditation." He 
then played "Manhattan Serenade" for 
an encore. 

Mr. Allen Buzzell gave a very clever 
dramatic monologue entitled "The He- 
ro." This was a burlesque of the old 
fashioned melodrama. Mr. Buzzell took 
all three parts, namely, "the poor wid- 
ow," "the villain," and "the hero." Mr. 
Buzzell is to be congratulated on his fine 
rendering of this difficult act.

Dr. C. A. Lynch, our new presi- 
dent-elect, spoke to the students for 
the first time in chapel period on 
Tuesday morning. He expressed his 
happiness in coming to Annville and 
in being able to come back to his 
Alma Mater as its presidenr. 

Dr. Lynch expressed th^ desire that 
all of Lebanon Valley's traditions and 
objectives could be carried out in the 
future as they have been in past. 
Our new president was captain qf the 
tug-of-war team his freshman year in 
college and expressed the desire that 
such traditions should never stop at 
Lebanon Valley. 

He pledged to the faculty and to 
the students his best for Lebanon Val- 
ley but the cooperation of the stu- 
dents and faculty is necessary for 
this to be accomplished. Dr. Lynch 
likened our college to the tug-of-war 
team. He said that as long as we keep 
our feet on the ground and pall to- 
gether, we will win and ha"e a thriv- 
ing institution. In conclusion he 
gave to the students and faculty a 
hearty invitation to visit Mrs. Lynch 
and himself in their new home here 
Dn our campus.

Opening Program 
Given By Deltas 


Old Legend Staged Amidst Orien- 
tal Setting Is Well 

Delta Lambda Sigma presented their 
opening program in Delphian Hall on 
Friday evening, October 21. Members 
of the faculty and all new girls were the 
guests of honor. 

"The Oracle of Delphi" was the theme 
of the program. The hall was so deco- 
rated with oriental hangings, soft lights, 
low lights and incense, that the audience 
was immediately carried away, first, to 
the court of King Rameses in Egypt. 
Here Thalia, a captive from the isle of 
Delos, was a slave-dancer. She and the 
king's son, Prince Ixtal, fell in love and 
were secretly married. This brought 
down upon them the wrath of the king, 
and also that of Isis, goddess of the Nile. 
They were banished, and were forbidden 
to return until atonement had been made 
for their sin. 

They began their wanderings, but the 
Prince fell ill by the wayside when they 
had almost reached the isle of Delos, 

where abode Pythia, the oracle of Del- 
was held in honor of the Freshmen boys il-tj • t li- ti i

oracle for advice. Pythia answered that

Philokosmians Open 
With Live Meeting 


Pre:.. Goodman Addresses New 
Students; Meeting Followed 
By Eats and Smokes 

Pbilokosmian Literary Society held it's 
first program of the year last Friday 
night, Oct. 21, in Philo Hall. The event 

The Sophs and Frosh mixed it up in 
their second battle of the season on 
Tuesday and this time the Frosh emerged 
victorious by a large margin. This time 
they engaged in the great L. V. C. tug- 
o-war on the banks of the ancient and 
traditional Quittie. 

The Sophs had the advantage of ex- 
perience but the Frosh had the weight 
advantage and it looked like an even 
pull until the whistle blew. However, 
ten seconds after the whistle, the Frosh 
could be seen to have the bette;- team. It 
was just a matter of sixty seconds until 
the Sophomore number one man was 
wallowing in the waters of the Quitta- 
pahilla. The Frosh had won the first 
pull. In the second pull, which lasted 
three minutes, those sopping Sopho- 
mores gave a better account of them- 
selves but they could do nothing against 
the tremendous weight of the Frosh tug- 
sters and so took another ducking Thus 
ended the tug until another year. 

The Sophomore team was composed 
of Captain Ricker, anchor man Meyer, 
Hauck, Koch, Palatini, King, Lingle, 
Thompson, Mentzer and Schwartz. 

The Frosh had as their team Captain 
Schmuck, who was also anchor man; 
Sandt, Shalter, Saunders, Heimbaugh, 
Ebett, Byers, Kawaloski, Prescott, Neible, 
Nelson, Krone, Shadel, Kirkpatrick, 
Gruber, Huber, Loos and Cassel. 

and also other new students. At this 
time Philo entertained a large number 
of guests to an amusing and interesting 
program, and then to a treat of favors, 
smokes, and eats, all of which the visi- 
tors seemed to enjoy immensely. 

The meeting was called to order at 
7.30 P. M. by Philo's president, Chester

Oxford Debate Plans Near Completion 

New York, N. Y. (NSFA)— With the 
arrival of the team from Oxford Univer- 
sity, the final arrangements for the inter- 
national debate season are being made. 
The two members of this team, Mr. A. 
J. Irvine and Mr. Geoffrey M. Wil- 
son, will leave New York on October 
twenty-fifth for a trip thru New Eng- 

land, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey 
and other Eastern states. 

At about the same time a team from 
Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland, will be- 
gin their tour thru the middle western 
and Southern colleges. Each team will 
have about 30 debates on their schedule, 
and will return to New York about the 
middle of December. 

Thalia must sacrifice herself to Isis, the 
goddess of the Nile, for atonement. 
And thus the prophecy of the oracle was 

Immediately the spell was broken 
when the lights were flashed on and the 
beautiful strains of music issued forth 
from the piano. Delicious refreshments 
were served and favors were presented 
to the guests. Dancing was the final 
number and brought a very enjoyable 
evening to a cloce. 

Those who to.^k part in the program 
were: Mary Gossard, Mildred Christian- 
sen, Dorothy Forry, Marion Kruger, 
Gloria LaVanture, Minna Wolfskeil, Es- 
ther Smeltzer, Arline Heckrote, Jane 
Bricker, Ruth Garner, Winifred Miller, 
Anna Butterwick, Gem Gemmill, Betty 
Ford, Olive Kaufman, Jane Smith, Trula 
Koch and Dorothy Ely. 

Debaters Hold Meeting 
To Discuss Plans 

First call for candidates for the men's 
debating team was issued last Thursday, 
October 20. The response was favor- 
able, with about twelve men present at 
the first meeting. 

Prof. Stokes, one of the coaches, was 
in charge of the meeting. He an- 
nounced plans for the tryouts which will 
be held some time within the next few 
weeks. He expressed his opinion that 
due to the awakened interest in debating 
this year, Lebanon Valley should have 
one of the best teams in the history of 
the school. Plans were also discussed rel- 
ative to the establishment of an honor- 
ary debating fraternity on the campus. 

Charles Kraybill, manager of the 
team, reported a tentative schedule of 
debates as arranged thus far. Opponents 
will include such schools as Gettysburg, 
W. 8C J., Western Maryland, Susque- 
hanna, Juniata, Ursinus, Elizabethtown, 
end Albright. 



On Monday, October 31, during 
the chapel period, La Vie Collegienne 
will conduct a presidential straw vote 
among the faculty and student body. 
The results will be kept secret until 
they are published in the next issue 
of La Vie. Be sure to be in chapel 
on Monday morning to cast your vote 
for Roosevelt, Hoover, Thomas, or 
any other candidate you may prefer.

THURSDAY, OCT. 27, 1932 


The Men's Senate has received i let- 
ter from the student governing body at 
Albright College requesting that there 
be no painting or decorating of either 
campus before the Albright-Lebanon 
Valley football game. In previous years 
it had been the custom of certain under- 
graduates in both institutions to visit the 
campus of their rival and deface the 
property thereof. In order to combat 
such a procedure freshmen were sta- 
tioned about the campus at strategic 
points with instructions to arouse other 
members of the student body should any 
belligerent appear. Naturally this en- 
tailed a loss of sleep on the part of the 
Frosh. Also we have had an unpleasant 
experience pertinent to such activities. 
Therefore, it is seriously hoped that the 
students will acknowledge this commend- 
able request. We do not want our camp- 
us painted nor does Albright. The only 
way to avoid this is to refrain from do- 
ing so, and we are sure that the Albright 
student body will concur. 




Sixty-six years ago, Lebanon Valley 
College was founded. It came into being 
through the influence and leadership of 
the United Brethren Church. It has 
remained ever since under the support 
and guardianship of that Church's con- 
stituency, and is now recognized as a 
growing and productive institution. 

Our worthy ancestors were wise. They 
realized that religious education must go 
hand in hand with secular education if 
the best work is to be done toward im- 
proving the moral and social status of 
the country. The trend is the same to- 
day. The Church is concerning itself 
with some of the great problems of the 
day. Realizing that it is a strong power 
in the moulding of public opinion, ir is 
seeking to find a solution to the many 
social, economic, and political problems 
confronting modern civilization. G. A. 
Soares, in his book "Religious Educa- 
tion," states the idea thus; 'An exami- 
nation of current religious thought and 
interest indicates that the problems 
which earnest people are seeking to face 
in the religious spirit are such as these: 
the attainment of physical vigor, a heal- 
thy and socially sound sex life, marriage 

as a spiritual partnership, the freedom 
and progressive self-direction of child- 
hood and youth, wages, industrial con- 
ditions, housing, riches and poverty, 
crime and its consequences, punishment 
and correction, race relations, inter- 
national relations, peace and war. . . . 
Every effort to give social ethics a reli- 
gious quality and religion a social qual- 
ity is so much to the good." The church 
cannot ignore the social aspects of civil- 
ization, nor can society long maintain its 
high level without the influence of the 

Thus, the real purpose and work of 
the modern Church is revealed. It is 
not concerned solely with the narrow 
sphere of moral life as such, but is em- 
phasizing the principle more and more 
that religion, more particularly the 
Christian religion, is a way of life. 
Christianity would teach men how to live 
in such a way as is most conducive to 
happiness and well-being. 

Students of Lebanon Valley, you are 
being given the privilege of studying in 
a Church school. Perhaps you have been 
prejudiced in your attitude toward the 
Church by some of its leaders and mem- 
bers. It is hoped you will overrule such 
prejudices after you have looked at the 
situation scientifically and without bias. 
It is upon you as potential leaders in 
the various fields that the problem of 
unifying secular and religious education 
rests. The Church's program of educa- 
tion is needed. The Church needs your 
assistance in carrying out this program. 
Your duty is evident. 

Alumni Notes

Dr. Isaiah W. Sneath, '81, and Mrs. 
Sneath of Wallaston celebrated their fif- 
tieth wedding anniversary. They were 
honored by a reception given to them 
by the parishoners of the Wallaston 
Congregationalist Church. Dr. Sneath

on October 15. They will make their 
home in Penbrook. 

Y. W. C. A. 


The regular weekly meeting of the 
Y. W. C. A. was held on Sunday eve- 
ning, Oct. 23, in North Hall parlor. 
The subject of the discussion was "Pray- 
er." The piano prelude was played by 
Rae Anna Reber. Flo Grimm read the 
evening's scripture lesson. "The Mean- 
ing of Prayer" was ably presented by 
Kathryn Mowrey. A vocal solo, "There 
Is a Land My Eye Hath Seen," was 
sung by Charlotte Stahley. Lena Cock- 
shott and Ruth Garner discussed briefly 
what "Prayer" meant to them. The de- 
votions were brought to a close with a 
Prayer Circle and the Mizpah benedic- 

Other Colleges 

Practically all the colleges of the same 
size and of the same rating as Lebanon 
Valley have Home Coming Day, Dad's 
Day and Mother's Day. We have none 
of these. Of course guests are always 
welcome. But a Home Coming Day 
would prove valuable in building up a 
keener interest in the college on the part 
of the Alumni Association. At the same 
time those who return would not feel as 
though they no longer belong to our 

Dramatics at Bucknell are on the up 
and up. Both in productions put on by 
the students and those which are played 
by professional companies. The Kings 
Production Club has its cast selected for 
"Hay Fever" by Noel Coward. The Art- 
ists Club is doing Romeo and Juliet 
for their Shakespearean play this year 
The leads in this play are given to guest 
artists while the college people take the 
less important roles. The Sir Nigel 
Playfair Production Company will visit 
that campus in the middle of January 
for the purpose of producing John 
Gay's "The Beggar's Opera." The com- 
pany is from England. "The Beggar's 
Opera" is a delightful comedy opera of 
early eighteenth century middle class 
life; the music consists of sixty popular 
airs of that period. There has been com- 
ment on our campus of putting on this 
play. We have done Faustus — and have 
done it well. Could we not make as great 
a success of this delightful piece of hu- 
mor? Which society will snatch it from 
the grab bag for its anniversary play? 

Rushing season is over at most of our 
colleges and universities. Lebanon Val- 
ley certainly is in the rear this year. 

The coming election is by far more 
discussed on other campuses than on our 
own. Many schools have straw votes and 
thus far in Amherst, Williams, Wesley- 
an and Haverford. Hoover has won. 
Only on the Harvard Crimson Staff hat 
Roosevelt been picked. Norman Thom- 
as has run close to Roosevelt in this type 
of election. But colleges are during 
more than taking straw votes; they pro- 
cure speakers to lecture on the various 
candidates. Bucknell has had J. C. Cur- 
ran of U. S. Navy who upholds the Re- 
publican party; Laurence H. Rupp, the 
Democratic, and Andrew Biesmiller, the 

Students living in one of the dormi- 
tories at the University of Georgia were 
warned recently that if they did not re- 
frain from taking so many baths they 
would be charged an extra fee. Have 
the officials of that institution forgotten 
that "cleanliness is next to godliness?" 


I passed in the twilight when the first 

pale star pepped out, 
And you lingered in your walking to 

bestow a smile devout, 
Then my heart began to whisper what 

my lips began to sing 
'Til the words and music flew to you 

like swallows on the wing. 
When I pass you in the twilight as I 

wander by your door, 
I'll sing that song to you, alone, now 

and forever more; 
So let it grow into your soul throughout 

the endless days, 
'Twill tell you that I loved you in a 

million different ways.

The Owl and Nightingale Club of 
Gettysburg put on "The Queen's Hus- 
band," a work of Robert Emmet Sher- 
wood, October 17. This play is based on 
Queen Marie's visit to the United States 
and the conditions then prevalent in the 
court of . King Ferdinand. 

Russian schools are so crowded that 
even small children must attend classes 
for a few hours during the day and then 
work on a night shift, according to an 
American student who has just returned 
from a year of teaching at Tomsk. Any- 
one expressing a Christian belief is 
barred from the schools. — Northeast 

The Neophyte Society of Shippens- 
burg State Teachers College have chosen 
"The Fourth Mrs. Phillips," "Coral 
Beads" and "Babbits Bay," all one act 
plays, to put on this semester. 


In an early issue we announced 
that we would place a contributors' 
box in the Administration Building. 
Unfortunately, however, ve bad not 
taken various factors into considera- 
tion and could not put up the box 
immediately. So kindly bear with us 
in this delay. The box will be put up 
as soon as the name of the r>nper has 
been painted upon it. It is hoped 
that we will be able to do this before 
the week expires. 

The Staff. 

The Woman's Student Council at 
Ursinus makes itself understood by pub- 
lishing its rules and aims in the school 
paper. One of interest to all Frosh is 
"The Freshmen Girls should be tested in 
the rules of the College and that those 
who fail will be social privileged." Our 
U. S. G. A. isn't so harsh after all. 
Bucknell's coeds wore for one week green 
ribbons, black hose, one long ear-ring 
and no cosmetics, while at Eastman 
School of Music at Rochester the girls 
are required to carry cigarettes and pea- 
nuts for all upper classmen. But at Stet- 
son the girls get a break; they may speak 
to men for three minutes when they meet 
the male sex down town. Imagine hold- 
ing a watch to time yourself. 

Many Girls To Try 

For Debating Posts 

The first meeting of the Girls' Debat- 
ing team for this year was held on Tues- 
day, Oct. 25, in the Administration 
building. The squad has just three of 
last year's veterans on it, Kathryn Mow- 
rey, Betty Schaak and Helen Eddy. This 
means that some new girls wili be given 
an opportunity to display their forensic 
ability. New candidates for the team 
are: Jane Shellenberger, Catherine 
Deisher, Louise Shearer, Marian Leisey, 
Sylvia Evelev, Louise Gillan, Anna Mary 
Erdman, Emma Reinbold, Helen Earnest 
and Marietta Ossi. With all these possi- 
bilities, and under the capable guidance 
of Professors Stokes and Stevenson, a 
successful year is assured. 

The question to be debated is, Re- 
solved, that the Inter-Allied Debts and 
Reparations should be cancelled. De- 
bates have already been scheduled for 
Ursinus, Albright, Western Maryland, 
and Elizabethtown. Tentative debates 
are being planned for Cedar Crest, Dick- 
inson, Susquehanna, Wilson, and Bea-

Well, perhaps this ought to be turned 
into an "advice" column. Miss Wood 
sprang a bright one in the kitchen last 
week. In a very much perturbed state 
of mind, she asked what she should do 
when she drives over a skunk. We'd say, 
"Step on it!" Somebody suggested giv- 
ing it first aid, yet I didn't see anyone 
playing the "good Samaritan" for the 
poor "sachet kitty" lying out by the ten- 
nb courts some time ago. 

Wogan is becoming real inquisitive, 
too. His latest question, as a result of 
psychology class, is "What does canary 
blue look like?" Perhaps he could have 
found an answer in the frosh pajama 
parade on Friday night. 

Now that the basketball season is only 
a monih or two away, I've been besieged 
with enthusiastic questions about the 
rules of the game. Can those frosh ask 
questions? Do you mind, Fred Morri- 
son, if I refer them to you for the naked 
truth about such questions as, "Do they 
serve little pink cakes and tea between 
halves" and "Who teaches the players 
how to pirouette?"

circles is — oh, no, Dr. Stevenson, not 
Norman Thomas — "spiritual outlook!"

before he was downed. Feeser circled 
tight end for 9 yards and Stone made 
first down. After three tries, Rust 
kicked across the goal line. Juniata lost

Rust scooted around right end for 20 

yards only to be set back 25 yards for 
clipping. Feeser gained 3 yards. Stone 
made ic first down. A pass, Rust to Wil- 
liams, netted 20 yards. Rust missed a

then told of the impressions she received

New York, N. Y. (NSFA) -The third 
series of National Student Federation 
broadcasts opened on Monday. October 
3rd, with an address by Dr. C. R. Hen- 
nings, a graduate of the University of 
Freiburg and an expert on economic con- 
ditions in Europe. 

Speaking on the subject, "Germany's 
Right to Re-arm" Dr. Hennings out- 
lined the circumstances leading up to the 
recent withdrawal of Germany from the 
Disarmament Conference at Geneva and 
the part that the Versailles Treaty has 
played in the present tense situation. 
"Franco-German understanding had to 
disarm under the peace treaty, her na- 
tional security was, of course, not con- 
sidered. When in 1926 she joined the 
League of Nations she became entitled to 
equal standing with all other members. 
Will Germany re-arm? Germany will 
cooperate in any general disarmament. 
She only wants equal treatment, not an 
increase in her armaments necessarily." 

Through the courtesy of the Columbia 
Broadcasting System, the programs will 
continue weekly on Monday afternoons 
from 2:00 to 2:15 P.M., Eastern Stand- 
ard Time. Announcements of future 
speakers will be made as the fall sched- 
ule is completed. 

(Continued from Page One) 
The main feature on Kalo's program 
was the speech by Mr. Mills of Annville. 
Mr. Mills was, and at present is, one of 
the active members of Kalo. He gradu- 
ated from Lebanon Valley in 1904. Mr. 
Mills gave a brilliant talk on Lebanon 
Valley in the "good old days." His talk 
contained many interesting facts. He 
related some of the pranks the colle- 
gians did during his school days. He 
told how Kalo struggled through this 
trying period, and how society programs 
were conducted during those early years. 
Mr. Mills then enlarged on, "as time 
changes, so changes the Literary Socie- 
ties." In conclusion Mr. Mills wished 
Kalo a very successful year and much 
luck to President Krumbiegel in his new 
administration. Incidentally, Mr. Mills 
drew up and designed the present Kalo 
Society pin. 

After a brass duet by Leonard 
Shrope and William Barnes, the 
president declared the meeting for- 
mally closed, but the evening was 

by no means over. After the program 
old and new friends got together and 
renewed acquaintances. Kalo then served 
eats and cigarettes to all present. The 
meeting finally closed at 10 o'clock. 


The class of '34 has picked for its 
play "The Importance of Being Ear- 
nest" by Oscar Wilde. This play is 
described as a trivial play for serious 
people. It is light in humor, easily

plot in which two very charming 
young ladies are intent on marrying 
men whose names are Earnest. Their 
two suitors are very much dismayed 
and their efforts to overcome this 
barrier leads them into many comical 

Dr. Wallace will coach the play

It is a most remarkable account of a 
Bohemian peasant, Jan Welzl, who 
trekked across Siberia with a cart and 
horse for companion into the Arctic Cir- 
cle — and his amazing experiences there 
for thirty years. 

Welzl did not write the book — but 
was questioned by two writers about his 
travels, and who in turn, produced this 
amazing volume. 

It is amazing because of its educa- 
tional, and reading value. There have 
been scientific, heroic, and tragic tales 
of Polar expeditions — but none as re- 
vealing and informative as this informal, 
frank and sincere chatter of Jan Welzl. 

The style is conversational, flowing, 
and written for the comprehension of 
the adolescent. Once you start reading 
it your interest is immediately held by 
its thrilling tales and yarns — and so it 
remains until the end. He gives you the 
exact truth — the plain and unpolished 
facts — and hides nothing to give you a 
complete picture — not of eternal ice — 
but eternal humanity. 

The pictures he gives of the Eskimos 
in the most remote corners; the descrip- 
tions of the ice floes; his experiences on 
whaling boats; his dealings with the 
strangest of whimsical characters, es- 
caped or thrown out of the world — who 
make up most of the population — are 
all so very different from anything you've 
ever read. 

He tells you that a whale when killed 
will spill blood enough to color the sea; 
that it is not an uncommon thing for a 
man to fall in love with a picture on a 
calendar; that Eskimo women live only 
twenty-two to twenty-eight years; and 
that a. man will shoot himself because he 
can't stand the pain of a toothache. 

Jan Welzl is still living and since the 
wanderlust is in him he has again gone 
back to the north. There he performs 
his duties as chief of the North Siberian 

Perhaps some day he will tell more of 
his Polar life — and when he does, we 
can again enjoy a real adventure story. 



When this book first appeared in 
1914, no more than a handful of read- 
ers realized what had come into Eng- 
lish letters. The same theme had been 
treated often before, but not in the 
same manner. James Joyce was experi- 
menting with a new form of novel, a 
form not yet fully developed. This type 
of novel, however, reached its full de- 
velopment in Joyce's later work, "Uly- 

The story is, in reality, an autobiogra- 
phy. It tells the story of the childhood, 
school and college life of a sensitive 
youth of an artistic type, born and 
reared in an antagonistic environment. 
The plot centers about the efforts of 
this young Irishman, Stephen Dedalus, 
to free himself from the Church, the 
teachings of his Jesuit priests and the 
conventions and patriotism of his fel 
low-countrymen as well as from the 
compromise of love. In the end, after 
a bitter struggle during which he reachel 
down to the depths of sin, he succeeds 
in liberating himself and becomes an ex- 
ile to country, Church and friends in 
order to obtain satisfaction and beauty 
from life. 

The author's style is, of course, ex- 
ceedingly modern, and I would say, ex- 
ceedingly interesting, although at times 
the thread of plot is quite difficult to 
follow. Joyce's descriptions are very 
vivid. He appeals to the senses to a 
great extent, very often to those of smell, 
taste and feeling, all of which help to 
make his writing very real. 

"A Portrait of the Artist as a Young 
Man" could not have been treated in the 
old-fashioned objective manner, for it is 
the thoughts of Stephen Dedalus which 
add to the progression of the story as 
well as any objective actions. The intro- 
duction to the book says that the mind 
of Dedalus is the hero of the novel. 
Thus, in this way, we see the value of 
this ultra-modern type of novel and the 
contribution which James Joyce has 
made to present day literature. 

Kalo Minstrels 

Again Promised 


Many of the Old Troupers Back 
Eager to Start Work; Few 
Lost By Graduation 

No one on our campus will have 
trouble in recalling that splendid per- 
formance of last Spring, "The Kalo 
Minstrels." Everyone will agree that it 
was the most unique and enjoyable en- 
tertainment ever before presented on the 
Lebanon Valley campus. It was the first 
venture in this field ever attempted at 
Lebanon Valley and it proved success- 
ful. Kalo led the way and this year in- 
tends to keep the ball rolling and prepa- 
rations are being made for a bigger and 
better show for the "Kalo Minstrels of 
1933." Start saving your pennies, boys 
and girls, for the date has already been 
set and things will soon be in progress 
and when Kalo gets started the fur is 
bound to fly. 

"Doc" Williard, able coach of last 
year's hit, will again take over the du- 
ties of coach, director or what have you. 
He has been busily engaged during the 
greater part of the summer vacation in 
organizing and getting together newer 
and more original entertainment for this 
year's show. "Doc" is very optimistic 
and predicts that this year's minstrels 
will be better than ever. He has collect- 
ed a large selection of songs and wise 
cracks. He has a wild and wooly set ar- 

ranged for the performance and is now 
busily at work in sorting this vast amount 
of material. Good luck, "Doc" old boy. 

Many of last year's performers are 
back again and like the real troupers 
they are will be all set for the minstrels 
of this year with a certain amount of 
practice. Among the oldtimers who are 
ready to get going, we have "Chick" 
Furlong, whose songs and jokes proved 
a great aid in the success of the min- 
strels of last year. "Little Jerry" Rus- 
sell is also back and ready to make the 
tears run down your cheeks with a good 
old, "You Gotta Bend Down Sister." 
And how he can do it. Watch the boy. 
"Barney" Mentzer whose bass solos were 
encored so much during our last show 
is also back and raring to get going. 
"Charley" Hauck, the pride of Flush- 
ing, is having a hard time forgetting his 
negro dialect which he practiced all sum- 
mer to get himself in shape for this 
year's show. "South Hall" Barnes and 
his Kalozoopeans will again get the jazz 
band assignment and you ought to see 
these boys when they get those horns 
and trombones going. Yes sir folks most 
of the other boys are back and they're 
all set for the greatest show ever present- 
ed before the Lebanon Valley footlights. 
Just keep your eyes open for the date 
which for the present will be kept a se- 
cret and start saving your pennies. It's 
going to be a great show and you don't 
want to miss it. If you do blame your- 
self for we're letting you know in ad- 
vance. Don't forget, Frosh, all you who 
join will have a chance to get in on this, 
the hit of hits so don't get discouraged 
with the amount of niggers in Kalo for 
this is going to require a large cast and 
the best will not be left out in the cold.

Goodman. He turned over the devotion- 
al period to the chaplain, Charles 
Daugherty who proceeded with the usual 
devotional exercises. The program of 
the evening was then opened with an ad- 
dress by the president. Mr. Goodman 
heartily welcomed the new students and 
invited them back to programs in the 
near future. 

Following his address, the president 
inducted Kenneth Shaeffer into the of- 
fice of recording secretary to take the 
position left vacant by the absence of 
John Trego from the campus. 

Immediately after this installation, the 
featured part of the evening's program 
took place. The scene represented the 
well-known council session to which all 
Freshmen are subjected soon after their 
arrival on the campus. At the head of 
the group of upper-classmen as the chief 
agitators were Algire McFaul, Chester 
Goodman, Amos Knisely and Woodrow 
Dellinger. They demanded that the 
Frosh be brought in and put through 
this ordeal. Accordingly, two Frosh, 
Richard Slaybaugh and Clyde Mentzer, 
clad in pajamas, were brought in and 
given a severe questioning. Finally it 
was suggested that they favor their ques- 
tioners with music, to which request they 
willingly obliged. And so there followed 
a saxophone solo by Richard Slaybaugh, 
with accompaniment by Clyde Mentzer. 

Three other Frosh were brought in 
next and also put through similar ques- 
tioning. These fellows, Charles Daugh- 
erty, Allan Ranck and Kenneth Shaef- 
fer, had a trying time in answering eve- 
rything correctly, and were much re- 
lieved when given a chance to express 
themselves otherwise. They blended 
their voices together in beautiful inter- 
pretation of "The Voice in the Old Vil- 
lage Choir" and "Sweet Adeline." They 
were excused after this excellent rendi- 
tion to make way for a cocky Frosh. 
This lad, Kenneth Whisler, had the worst 
experiences of any of his companions, 
and was rather wet until he satisfied his 
tormentors. They were pleased only af- 
ter the Frosh had led the entire group 
in cheers and songs, and had promised 
to reform. The upper-classmen decided 
by this time that they had put the Frosh 
through a rather severe period, and so 
they called an end to this burlesque of 
a usual council session. 

Immediately after the program favors 
were distributed to all those present. 
Then everyone indulged in delicious re- 
freshments of cider, pretzels and cakes. 
At the same time small pipes were dis- 
tributed, and tobacco as well as ciga- 
rettes were put within easy reach. After 
eating and smoking as much as each one 
cared to, the guests and members got in- 
to card games or ping-pong matches. 
Thus the evening passed rapidly and 
quite successfully until time for the pep 
meeting when everyone left Philo after 
having spent a very enjoyable evening 

Campus Gayety Hit 
By Effect of Slump 

Sobering Trend Noted in New Cal's 
For Cultural Courses and Free 

Orville T. Spessard, '21, and Kathe-

New York, N .Y. (NSFA)— The ef- 
fect of the depression which has swept 
f torn the college campus much of ' the 
gay background against which the under- 
graduate posed his studies has also ad- 
versely affected college enrollments, a 
survey of twenty-four colleges and uni- 
versities of the country indicates. 

In answer to queries from The New 
York Times, officials of institutions 
from Boston to Berkeley estimated tha: 
the chief effect of the depression had 
been to modulate the carefree joy of 
campus life and to focus the attention 
of students on books and blackboards. 
The student of 1932, many of the re- 
plies indicated, has sold the flashy road- 
ster and is buying second-hand books, 
and more than ever before he is asking 
for scholarship aid, low-priced dormi- 
tory rooms, and a chance to work his 

An interpretation of the statistics and 
replies indicates a trend away from tech- 
nical education toward cultural subjects 
In general, the institutions, the enroll- 
ments of which were most affected by 
the depression, seemed to be those lo- 
cated in the farming belts of the Middle 
West. Most of the local colleges and 
universities maintained their enrollments 
at about the same figures as last year, 
and a few Eastern institutions such as 
Amherst, Fordham, Harvard and Vassar 
reported slight increases in their student 
attendance. Columbia, with an estimat- 
ed drop of more than 1,000 students, re- 
ported the largest loss of any of the 
nineteen institutions. 

At the University of California the 
"chief effect of the depression noted 
here is prolongation of the college per- 
iod by students already registered and 
return of old students who once left. 
Enrollment of new undergraduates nev- 
er atending before shows a tendency to 
decrease. Apparently, students who for- 
merly were attracted from college by of- 
fers of lucrative positions are now con- 
tinuing their studies for lack of some- 
thing to do. On the other hand, stu- 
dents who have not yet entered college 
drag out high school work or enter local 
junior colleges to save money by living 
at home."

his dismissal were his insistence on free- 
dom for the activities of the Liberal 
Club (a militant student organization), 
and the fact that, outside the college,

Lebanon Valley Wins Third Game; 

Defeats St. Joseph's Hawks, 19-0 


Feeser Goes Over Final Stripe 
Twice; Rust Skirts End 
For Third Tally 

Lebanon Valley passed their way to 
their third victory of the season last Sat- 
urday down on Finnessey Field in the 
City of Brotherly Love. This time 
"Hooks" Mylin's men took as their vic- 
tims the St. Joe Hawks who are under 
the tutelege of Emid Thomas, erstwhile 
Penn star. Lebanon Valley took the old 
pigskin over the enemy's goal line in the 
first, third, and final periods for a 19-0 

Charley Rust, the former Lansdowne 
ace, and "Scoop" Feeser of Lebanon fur- 
nished the scoring punch for the Mylin- 
coached machine. Between this pair Leb- 
anon Valley scored 18 of her 19 mark- 
ers. Lee Stone made the extra point after 
Feeser had gone over for the first six 
pointer of the game, late in the first 

Rust and Feeser of the Blue and White 
formed a combination which spelled dis- 
aster for the Crimson Hawks. Feeser, 
time and again, took baseball passes from 
the diminutive Rust which advanced the 
ball deep into St. Joe territory and in the 
first and third periods spelled touch- 
downs for the Mylinmen. Rust scored 
the third touchdown early in the fourth 
quarter when he made a wide sweep 
around right end from the three yard 
line and after shaking off two would-be 
Crimson tacklers, touched the oval down

Mrs. Lynch Interviewed 
By La Vie Reporter 

Mrs. Lynch, wife of the president 
elect, is not entirely a stranger in Ann- 
ville. She was formerly from Harrisburg 
and lived there while Dr. Lynch was at- 
tending Lebanon Valley. 

Upon completion of his preparation 
for the ministry, he accepted the pasto- 
rate at Ephrata. Through their work 
there Mrs. Lynch feels as though she 
knows intimately some of the students 
from Ephrata. 

From Ephrata they went to Philadel- 
phia. Six years later Dr. Lynch received 
a call to come to Dayton. They spent 
three years at Dayton, and while here 
Mrs. Lynch spent a great deal of her 
time in taking courses at the Seminary. 
She was greatly interested in her work 

They have two children who are now 
attending the Annville High School, 
Eleanor, who is a Senior, and John, who 
ls a Freshman. 

The family is busily becoming ac- 
quainted with the school and vicinity 
u ntil Dr. Lynch returns and assumes 
Is duties of president on December 1. 

Mrs. Lynch is very anxious to become 
^ c quainted with the members of the stu- 
^rit body and surely welcomes them into 
e 'r home at any time. 

The band elected officers last week. 
Theo. C. Walker '33, was elected presi- 
dent, Richard Walborn, '33, vice-presi- 
dent, Robert Heath '34, secretary, and 
George Hiltner '35, treasurer. 

The band went to Philadelphia on 
Saturday, where they played at the game. 
On Monday evening they marched in 
the large Hallowe'en parade in Lebanon 
and won first prize for musical organi- 
zations. The prize amounted to ten

Miniature Minstrels 
Presented At Kalo 
Session On Friday 


Sextet Sing Songs From the 
First Edition of the 

Kalozetean Literary Society held its 
weekly meeting Friday night, 8 o'clock 
in Kalo hall. 

President Krumbiegel opened the 
meeting. He gave a speech of welcome 
to the freshmen and old Kalo members. 
He briefly outlined what Kalo represent- 
ed and their plans for the future. The 
president then gave a vivid sketch of 
the early days of Kalo and how it had 
risen to be the club it is. He invited all 
guests to remain for the program which 
the club presented. 

Mr. Warren Mentzer gave a short 
scriptural talk, then with Mr. Albert An- 
derson acting as pianist, the society sang 
several hymns. 

The program was, as usual, a peppy, 
cheery kind, that for which Kalo is 
noted. The club put on several dance

New York, N. Y. (NSFA) — Th« 
Eighth Annual Congress of the Na 
tional Student Federation will take 
place in New Orleans from December 
27th to 31st at the invitation of Tul 
ane University and Newcomb College. 

Plans are being made to accom 
modate betwen three and four nun 
dred student presidents representing 
colleges and universities from every 
section of the country. Several na- 
tionally known speakers will sound 
the keynote of the meeting, and dis- 
cussion groups will be held on student 
government, honor systems, athletics, 
publications, and other problems 
which an exchange of intelligent stu- 
dent opinion helps to clarify. 

Quittie Pictures to 
Be Taken Next Week 

The individual pictures of the 
juniors and seniors, as well as many 
group pictures for the 1934 Quitta- 
pahilla, will be taken next week when 
the official Quittie photographer will 
arrive on the campus. The same plan 
that was used last year will be fol- 
lowed this year. Individuals will be 
scheduled for sittings personally, and 
the schedule of group pictures will 
be announced. The individual pic- 
tures probably will be taken in the 
conservatory, starting November 9. 

The staff hopes to accomplish this, 
probably the most difficult single task 
in the production of the yearbook, 
with a minimum of inconvenience 
and confusion. Accordingly, we hope 
you will cooperate as much as pos- 
sible by being prompt for sittings 
and by being ready with the nominal 
charge of #1.00 .Be on the alert 
for further announcements. 

Faculty Members Attenc 
Conference in Delaware 

Madame Green, Miss Gillespie, and 
Mrs. Lietzau were delegates from Leba- 
non Valley College to the American As- 
sociation of University Women, over this 
week-end. They attended the sectional 
meeting at Wilmington, Delaware, and 
at the University of Delaware, at New-

most enjoyable week-end. 

Philo Entertains 
Frosh Men At 
Regular Meeting 


"Sir Patrick Spens" and "The 
Highwayman" Recited With 
Appropriate Gestures 

Philo entertained Freshmen and new 
students for a second time last Friday 
night, Oct. 28, in Philo Hall. A large 
group of visitors and Philo members 
gathered at 7.30 that evening to enjoy 
an interesting program prepared espe- 
cially for the occasion. 

Chester Goodman was in the presi- 
dent's chair as the meeting opened. Im- 
mediately after his call to order, Harry 
Zech began the devotional exercises. At 
the conclusion of these, the secretary 
was instructed to read off the numbers 
on the program. 

As the first number, Mr. Goodman 
gave an address of welcome. In this he 
gave the past history of the Philokosmian 
society and outlined plans for future ac- 
tivity. This was followed by a burlesque 
of the well known poem "Sir Patrick 
Spens." Philo members who took part 
in the skit were Kenneth Shaeffer as the 
king, Charles Daugherty as the knight, 
Clyde Mentzer as Sir Patrick Spens, 
Charles Kraybill and Stuart Werner as 
ladies. The action was all pantominedj 
and the reading was capably done by

Music, Refreshments and Dancing 
Are Enjoyed By Frosh and 
Faculty Members 

On Friday night, Clio had, as her 
guests, all new students and new mem- 
bers of the faculty as well as her patron- 
esses. After a cordial reception by Mir- 
iam Owen, Marian May and Ruth Coble, 
the formal hostesses of Clio, the program 
was begun. Sweet strains of music float- 
ed in to the audience as Catherine Heck- 
man, Katty McAdam and Matilda Bon- 
anni sang Clio's invocation to the muse. 
The words to this song were composed 
by Carol Brinser '29 and set to the music 
of Mendelssohn's "Spring Song." Then 
the poet entered her studio and made 
her plea to Minerva for inspiration to 
write a poem. 

"The Moonlight Sonata," softly played 
by a Greek maiden, was the first of a 
series of delightful inspirations. This

At last, after many unavoidable

In a straw vote held in chapel on 
Monday morning, October 31, Herbert 
Hoover retained the presidency of the 
United States, at least as the choice of 
Lebanon Valley College students, by a 
4-to-l margin over each of his ii.t... 
rivals, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Nor- 
man Thomas. 

The overwhelming Hoover victory 
came as a blow to many who felt sure 
that the liberal sentiment in the college 
would result in success for the Demo- 
cratic or the Socialist candidate. 

However, by a vote of 223 for Hoover 
to 56 each for Roosevelt and Thomas, 
and a few scattered votes, the present in- 
cumbent received support that showed

Clio to Have Dance; 

Play to Come Later 

Clio has broken away from tradition 
and made a new gesture on the campus 
in regards to her Anniversary. Due to 
the short time intervening between the 
taking in of pledges and the Anniver- 
sary date, she has decided to mark her 
Anniversary with a formal dance, and 
to give an Anniversary play somewhat 
later in the year. 

Up to this time, Clio has had to put 
on plays in the comparatively short space 
of two or three weeks. This naturally 
forbade the production of anything 
elaborate and called for a great lot of 
last minute rushing. It is hoped with 
this new plan that better and more satis- 
factory plays can be put on. 

"The Beggar's Opera" by John Gay 
has been chosen for production this 
year. This play calls for much coopera- 
tion on the part of the conservatory fac- 
ulty and students as well as on the part 
of the society and all other students. 
Deciding that it was better to put on this 
distinguished play well, or not at all, the 
society determined to put off producing 
the play until the second semester. 

Miss Kathryn Lutz is the Anniversary 
president and her play committee con- 
sists of Marian May, chairman, Kather- 
ine Gockley and Ruth Coble. The so- 
ciety has secured the services of Prof. 
J. G. Struble in coaching the play.

The Lebanon Valley College straw 
vote is now history. The landslide elec- 
tion of a candidate embodying the con- 
servative principles of government and 
the rejection of candidates representing 
libctal elements, provides an interesting 
instance of the so-called liberalism of 
the American college. 

Lebanon Valley students are not alone 
in favoring the Republican candidate. 
Returns from over forty colleges and 
universities exhibit a similar overwhelm- 
ing preference. Outside of several me- 
tropolitan universities, practically all the 
institutions elected" Hoover. 

The wisdom of this is not a matter for 
editorial comment in La Vie. This pa- 
per conducted the poll in a non-partisan 
manner and will review it in the same 

However, it seems very odd that col- 
leges, which are popularly supposed to 
comprise elements of liberal expression, 
and to provide cradles for the germs of 
change, should react in this way to the 
offer of new forms of government, espe- 
cially at a time when the administration 
is receiving blame from some quarters 
for decidedly sub-par conditions. 

Is this the "strong and fiery impetu- 
osity" of youth? Is it the calm collec- 
tive reasoning of a large group of people 
who allegedly are being trained to think? 
Or is it the complacent conservatism of 
a large group of hide-bound reaction- 
aries, who find great satisfaction in a 
position of admitted social superiority? 

These questions can be argued back 
and forth for days. The Republican can 
find pleasure in the bald majorities 
amassed. The Democrat and the Social- 
ist can derive hope from the large pro- 
portional gains made. 

Be that as it may, we can draw several 
conclusions. There is no reason for the 
undergraduate, or the faculty member, 
for that matter, to become unduly excit- 
ed about the liberalism of American col- 
leges. Conventions of medieval univer- 
sities are still impressed upon us. On 
the other hand, may there not be a grain 
of truth in these words of Heywood 
Broun, firebrand of American column- 

"The old reproach that the* 
American undergraduate is the most 
conservative member of the society 
in which he lives begins to fade. . . . 

It seems to me that a new liveliness 
of thought has come into our col- 
leges. The undergraduate is no 
longer content to take the world 
just as he finds it. He is prepared 
to question and to demonstrate*."

Student Prayer 

Meeting Held 

Allen Ranck had charge of the stu- 
dent prayer meeting held in Philo Hall 
Wednesday evening, October 26. A 
piano solo was played by George Shadel. 
Harry Zeck had charge of devotions. 
Chester Goodman was the speaker of the 

The topic discussed was "Codfish Aris- 
tocracy." As would be thought, this class 
includes the "nouvean riche." But it 
also includes those who flaunt marks 
and college degrees with no cause. Those 
who find themselves suddenly rich, whe- 
ther it be due to codfish or not, have 
nothing of which to boast. In fact, all 
of us have so very little and are so in- 
significant, that we should follow Jesus' 
example, and be truly humble. 


With the end of Russia's first Five- 
Year Plan only a little more than two 
months off, all the world is waiting to 
hear the final results. The official fig- 
ures to date show that Russia's industry, 
although running considerably already 
of last year, has accomplished less than 
half the increase planned for 1932. The 
first eight months of this year showed an 
increase of 14.9 per cent above the same 
period last year, whereas an increase of 
36 per cent was planned for the year of 

The U. S. Navy was established by 
the Continental Congress 157 years ago. 
New York City celebrated this anniver- 
sary October 27 with an open day at 
the Navy Yard in Brooklyn. The cruis- 
er Seattle, during the war flagship of the 
cruiser and transport force which con- 
veyed the first American soldiers to 
France, was opened for visitors. Naval 
aviation also had its part in the day. At 
Lakehurst the naval air station was open 
to visitors. However, the expected flights 
were prevented by the weather condi- 
tions. A squadron of seven planes paid 
tribute to the grave of Theodore Roose- 
velt, who as president vigorously sup- 
ported an adequate navy. It would be 
interesting if we could hear Roosevelt's 
opinion on armament today. 

Canada and Great Britain have adopt- 
ed a new tariff agreement. In a general 



way, this new schedule indicates that 
Canada has increased British preference 
on 223 of the 262 items that make up 
the schedules, and has increased from 
80 to 157 the number of items on the 
free list for the United Kingdom. As a 
result, Canadian wheat will enter the 
United Kingdom duty free, while other 
countries will pay the general tariff of 
three pence (4.3 cents) a bushel of 
wheat. It would seem as if this new 
agreement were a direct retaliation 
against our Hawley-Smoot Act. If it is 
just a measure of further protection for 
the nations concerned, it will give us a 
chance to learn how other nations feel 
when our own tariffs are raised. 

After a visit to Stockholm, a Danish 
newspaper man wrote a description of 
the Swedish capital as "Europe's most 
American city." 

He said: "There is something dis- 
tinctly American in the whole layout of 
the streets which cannot be found any 
place else in Europe. And the Stock- 
holm folks also are much like Americans 
in looks, dress and action. One might 
be tempted to believe that the Ameri- 
cans are descendants of our sister nation 
or that Stockholm is an American col- 

Now the Stockholm folks are wonder- 
ing whether this description of their city 
is a compliment or not. 

Morris Markey, a newspaper man, 
made a tour of 16,000 miles over the 
United States in a Ford, just because he 
is interested in "people — and trying to 
discover what makes them tick." He vis- 
ited with coal-miners, movie stars, bank- 
ers, and tramps, and learned a sorry tale. 
He describes America as "one of the 
most aimless great nations that the world 
has known. Americans are no longer in- 
terested in democracy. The forefathers 
of the Republic would not know or speak 
to their descendants, who seem indiffer- 
ent to whether democracy is safe or in 
peril, so long as they are individually 
safe." This criticism may seem harsh, 
bi't it cannot be denied entirely. Soon 
we will all have many opportunities to 
show how we feel toward our country. 
Will we be indifferent, too?

was admirably done by Margaret Early, 
one of Clio's most talented artists. Be- 
fore the last notes of Beethoven's beau- 
tiful composition had died away, an old- 
fashioned girl entered and played "Drink 
to Me Only with Thine Eyes" on her 
harp. The dainty maid, dressed in pink 
organdy and lace, was none other than 
Doris Gorrecht, who has often delighted 
the campus with her music. 

Another lovely thought represented 

was a minuet danced by Millie Nye and 
Margaret Longenecker in the costumes 
of that period in our history when the 
minuet was in fashion. "Patterns" — that 
gorgeous bit of modern verse by Amy 
Lowell served as the next inspiration for 
the poet. The poem was read by Haidee 
Blubaugh who was appropriately dressed 
in a "stiff -brocaded gown." The inspi- 
rations of the past were brought to a 
close by Helen Eddy who sang "Who Is 
Sylvia," one of the best known of 
Shakespearean songs. 

The modern period of inspiration 
was opened by Danse Negre, by Cyril 
Scott, a selection from modern music 
played by Margaret Early. "Clouds" and 
"Sweet Mystery of Life" were charming- 
ly sung by Margaret Sharp, whose voice 
has often been heard in conservatory 
recitals. Charlotte Weirich, Anne Matu- 
la and Margaret Kohler took the leading 
roles in a short skit entitled "Yashmak" 
by Percival Wilde. The story, that of 
a honeymooning couple and a cross- 
word puzzle hound, was uproariously 
funny and was fully appreciated by the 
audience. Rose Dieter then entertained 
with a few modern dances. Matilda Bon- 
anni, Clio's radio artist of the future, 
sang "Say It Isn't So" and "You've Got 
Me In the Palm of Your Hand." 

Thanking Minerva for her kind in- 
spiration, Miriam Owen with the help 
of two nymphs, Anna Krebs and Helen 
Earnest, handed to each guest a first edi- 
tion of Sara Teasdale's "A Country 
House." The girls went down to the 
small dining hall where delicious refresh- 
ments were served to them by the Sopho- 
more girls. Miss Owen, as president of 
Clio, read a telegram from Madame 
Green expressing her regrets at not be- 
ing able to be present. The remainder 
of the evening was spent in dancing. 
Freshmen and faculty alike shared in 
the good time and all were reluctant to 

Those patronesses and faculty present 
were Mrs. Lynch, Mrs. Ritchie, Miss 
Myers, Mrs. Struble, Mrs. Rutledge, Mrs. 
Butterwick, Miss Kenyon, Mrs. Hone- 
cipher and Mrs. Reynolds. Amon^ the 
alumni were noted Misses Esther and 
Lucile Shenk, Mrs. J. W. Esbenshade 
and daughter, Anne, Miss Mildred My- 
ers, Mary Clymer, Marion Hoffman and 
Katherine Krebs. 

The charm of the program was all 
due to the careful planning and untir- 
ing effort's of Miss Jane Muth and her 
committee. Refreshments were in charge 
of Miss Marian May and decorations 
were put up under the direction of Mil- 
dred Nye. 

La Vie Collegienne wishes to ex- 
tend the sincere sympathy of the stu- 
dent body and the faculty to Dr.

Jerry Russell was telling Lois Miller 
that he thought her high-hat. "Oh," 
said Lois quite disdainfully, "that's be- 
cause I was born above you." "Hmph!" 
snorted Jerry, further tilting his natural- 
ly tilted nose, "so you were born in an 
upper berth, eh?" 

The columns of late have been drip, 
ping with original verses by various 
campus people who have nothing better 
to do. Some are serious attempts, but 
most are nonsensical — most of them, to 
use the more dignified French, are tres 
lousee. Here's some more. This first by 
Babe Earley: 

You dope! You should elope 
With another dope. 

Moral: Two dopes can scope better 
than one. 

Here is a product of some roaming 
Romeo who, disappointed in love, seeks 
revenge with a comic Valentine. Soft 
lights and sweet music: 
Your eyes are of the ocean's green, 
Too bad they cross just in between 
The crooked arching of your nose. 
But then at least you might wear clothes 
Which fit you better. And dye your hair 
To save its blinding rays from every, 

Blinding people who unwisely glance 
At your frying pan face. Ah, Romance! 

And to close this burst of poetical in- 
spiration, why not this little three liner 
from one whose mind refused to produce 
any poetry (much to the relief of all con- 
cerned) : 

Inspiration's fled 
From my head 
The Muse is dead. 
Lone; live the Muse! 

The pointed needle for Levitz's laugh. 
Hughes' sense of humor. Hash. Cold 
weather (Lover's Lane and Kreidei^s 
closing for the season). Cohen's prac- 
tical jokes. Society rushing. The sopho- 
more tug team. Post office "loitering" 
notices. Book "borrowers." Mid- semes- 
ter quizzes with class work going on as 
usual. History reports. Cowboy movies 
at the Astor. 

The praise tipped needle for Saus- 
ser's violin playing. The Y party. My- 
lin's boys. Parents who bring huge sup- 
plies of eats to little boys in school. 
Reader's Club's new vitality. Hauck's 
and Mentzer's salesmanship. Speg's new 
suits (C. O. D. $14.50, Sears &C Roe- 
buck. Boy's football free with each suit). 

If I may let the weather get into my 
blood (or shouldn't I say the weather but 
rather the scenery), the country-side is 
certainly more beautiful now than ever. 
Confidentially I've never seen as pretty 
scenery in my home state. One can t 
find farm country much nicer than this 
good old Pennsylvania motley of hills 
and dales of amazing colors. From my 
window I can see a sloping hill-field full 
cf corn-shocks. In front and in back 
of it are trees shouting forth their hap- 
piness in a colorful Hallowe'en costume. 
Farther back is a line of blue hills to 
frame the picture. 

Society pledging is over finally and 
with it comes the usual cry of "They beat 
us by lying to the freshmen." It's P oor 
sportsmanship to cry about a defeat or 
to crow about a victory. Certainly the 
fellows rushed the freshmen — fellow^ 
from either society. And the same hold? 
for the girls. But what does it matter if 
one got more than the other? It runs in 
circles and next year the order will be 
again inverted. But criticism should be 
constructive. Before the Christmas holi- 
days, no society does anything of an * 
great import except Clio which can c er 
tainly gather enough old talent for then" 
anniversary. Joint sessions, regular P r ° 
grams, and the like can be attended at 
will by the freshmen. Welcoming parties 
need only be the first time or two. Then 
why not wait until just before or j uS 
after the Christmas holidays to pl edge 
new members? It will be much fairer 
the societies and much fairer to the n ewr 




The Mylinmen, by making it three 
victories to two defeats, stand fifth in 
t he smaller college football ratings in 
t he eastern section of the United States. 
Geneva heads the list, while Albright, 
oU r traditional rival, is second with 
four wins and one defeat. Her defeat 
came at the hands of Bucknell by a 13-6 
score. Incidentally Albright defeated 
jvlc. St. Mary's on Saturday by a 13-0 
score. We meet the Saints on November 
12 at Emittsburg. 

The annual frosh-soph grid contest 
w iH be staged on Monday afternoon, 
Nov. 21, just after the Albright game. 
Both teams have started practice for the 
contest and it should be a close game, 
although our predictions are for the 
frosh by a one touchdown margin. 

Fights Again For L. V. j students protest ban 


The Mylinmen leave tomorrow for 
Springfield, Mass., and the lair of the 
Springfield College Chiropractors whom 
t hey meet on Saturday for the second 
contest between the two schools. Leba- 
non Valley is favored to win this game 
by a small margin. Springfield won 
from Delaware last week by a 13-10 
score and there should be tough going 
for the Blue and White on Saturday. 
Springfield whitewashed L. V. in 1930 
by a 20-0 score. 

Well it looks like Lebanon Valley has 
come to her feet at last. Organized 
cheering at the Juniata game was some- 
thing to be proud of but when we have 
it at an away from home game as we 
did in Philadelphia, then we must have 
organization. Let's have a rousing cheer 
for our new cheer-leaders. 

The band looked great on Saturday, 
too, and we hear that they won first 
prize at Lebanon on Monday night with 
seven other bands in the competition. 
Lebanon Valley now has a band to be 
proud of as well as a band director who 
can keep it going. 


Quarterback of L. V. varsity, who has 
been kept from service by an early-sea- 
son injury to his hand. 

Well, here's bringing this column to 
a close and here's hoping somebody in 
the boys' dorm changes his theme song. 
I'm tired of hearing "Say It Isn't So"

for Lebanon Valley's third six-pointer 
of the game. This touchdown came af- 
ter a sustained drive down the field which 
was featured by the ball toting of Frank 
Boran and Harry Whiting. Incidentally 
| this was Boran's first game since he sus- 
tained a broken finger in the first game 
°f the season against State. 

Zuber and McNichol played a good 
game for the losers but it was to no avail 
a nd the Hawks went down to their fifth 
I st raight loss of the season. 
( A high wind whipped the playing 
^ld, handicapping the punters when 
I 'hey attempted to kick into it. Becker, 
°f the Hawks, waged a losing punting 
Wtle to Rust of Lebanon Valley. Early 
"i the first period one of his punts went 
°ut of bounds on the Hawk 23 yard line, 
Putting L. V. C. in a scoring position, 
^he St. Joe line refused to yield and 
Stone of L. V. tried a placement kick 
w hich went wild due to the difficult angle 
atl d the wind. A little while later a sec- 
° n d Hawk punt went out of bounds on 
^ e 21 yard marker. It was here that 
^ e Rust-Feeser combination functioned 
two laterally thrown screened passes 
^tted the first touchdown. Stone kicked 
( he extra point. 

In the second period the Hawks held 
I e Heavier Lebanon Valley team score- 

* Ss and with the wind to their backs 

°wed something of a serious attack. 
* Ust punted to mid-field, Campbell 
"nibled the oval and Furlong picked it 
"if an< ^ ran ^ or a touc hdown. However, 
e officials called the ball back, and 
Warded it to St. Joe. St. Joe was in 

scoring position three times during this 
period but failed on each attempt, the 
half ending as Zuber made a first down 
on the L. V. 12 yard marker. 

Lebanon Valley came back in the 
third period for another touchdown. 
Rust's punt was out of bounds on the 
Crimson one yard line and Becker's re- 
turn kick was so juggled by old man 
wind that it went out of bounds on his 
own 5 yard line. L. V. tried three run- 
ning plays and after no gain and a 5 
yard penalty pulled the screened pass 
again and a flip from Rust to Feeser 
added the second touchdown. 

Shortly after the start of the final 
period Lebanon Valley found itself on 
its own one yard line due to a 70 yard 
punt by Slezak of the homesters. How- 
ever, Charley Rust pulled the unexpected 
and made a beautiful 35 yard run from 
in back of his own goal line. This was 
a clean piece of head work from the 
L. V. C. field general. Following two 
more exchanges of punts Lebanon Val- 
ley carried the ball to the three yard 
marker where Rust went over for the 
last score of the game. Smith missed 
the extra point.

New York, N. Y. (NSF A)— Students 
of Columbia University recntly held a 
formal meeting of protest against the 
new university ruling prohibiting out- 
door meetings and requiring supervision 
of all indoor meetings open to the public 
by a faculty member of professional 

Action was taken at a meeting of the 
Columbia Social Problems Club, origin- 
ally scheduled to meet on the library 
steps to protest against the recent ruling 
of Secretary of Labor Doak on self-sup- 
porting non-quota foreign students. The 
meeting was held in the School of Bus- 
iness Building. In accordance with the 
ruling, Professor Joseph D. McGoldrick 
of the Department of Government acted 
as chairman. 

At the meeting Donald Henderson, 
instructor in economics at Columbia Col- 
lege and secretary of the National Stu- 
dents' League, assailed the university 
ruling and called for a united protest 
against it on the part of Columbia stu- 
dents. He asserts that the university by 
forcing the Social Problems Club's meet- 
ing indoors had made the meeting "dry 
and academic". 

Mr. Henderson proposed that a com- 
mittee, consisting of members of the 
club and other representatives of the 
undergraduate and graduate body, be 
formed to organize a stern protest 
against the ruling. He also proposed 
that another committee be set up at 
Columbia to work in cooperation with 
a similiar committee at New York Uni- 
versity in the protest against Secretary 
Doak's ruling on foreign students. 

Both resolutions were passed by the 
club. A petition was also drawn up and 
signed by members of the club demand- 
ing the immediate withdrawal "of the 
reactionary rule against foreign working 
class students". The petition will be cir- 
culated among Columbia students and 
sent to Secretary Doak. 

Hallowe'en Party 

Held in Gymnasium 

The annual Hallowe'en party spon- 
sored by the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. 
//as held in the Alumni Gymnasium Sat- 
urday night, Oct. 29. The students gath- 
ered, some with masks and some with- 
out, and were enjoying themselves in the 
customary way when the spirit of Hal- 
lowe'en was ushered in by four ghosts. 
This spirit was none other than the old 
witch who took her place upon a small 
platform at one end of the gym. She^ 
welcomed all Hallowe'eners to the party, 
and announced the procedure of the pro- 
gram for the evening. Miss Betty Schaak 
read a negro ghost story in a very weird 
and truly spirited manner, after which 
the grand march started. The witch 
called upon Dr. Wallace and Dr. Stone- 
cipher to assist in judging the costumes. 
The prize winners were as follows: Mir- 
iam Owen, prettiest; Kathryn Grimm, 
funniest; Flo Grimm, most original; 
Ruth Coble, most elaborate. 

The witch then hobbled into a stall 
built of corn fodder and told fortunes 
to all who passed by her hovel. While 
she thus entertained the guests the re- 
freshment committee served cider, spice 
cake, candy corn, and apples. After 
several more games, noise makers and 
confetti were distributed and the crowd 
returned to their various halls appearing 
in their natural garb the next morning. 

The gym was decorated with corn 
shocks and yellow lanterns, giving the 
correct atmosphere to the party with a 
soft yet weird appearance. 

The Y. presidents, Ruth Coble and 
Stuart Werner, with the social chair- 
men, Chester Goodman and Kathryn 
Mowery, are to be commended for the 
fine time they procured for the student 
body. The chaperones were Dr. and' 
Mrs. Wallace, Dr. and Mrs. Stoneciphet 
and Madame Green. 


"Three types of men go to college; 
those who are willing to be educated, 
those who want to be educated, and those 
who are determined to be educated," said 
Newton D. Baker in a recent article writ- 
ten for the Princetonian.

In accord with an announcement last 
year that the university would accept 
produce from Illinois farmers at tuition 
and that they would pay 10 per cent 
above the market price, a student at Ill- 
inois Kesleyan University paid his tui- 
tion with 40 sacks of potatoes. 

Almost 45 per cent of the 878 fresh- 
men who answered a questionaire ai 
Hunter College are under the normal 
college entrance age. Of these five are 
only 14 years old and eighty-four are

In answer to a questionaire sent out 
to Princeton graduates of the class of 
1922, fifty-six alumni stated that in their 
opinion the average girl can struggle 
through life pretty nicely with the equiv- 
alent of a high school education and 
that they would not send their daughters 
to college. One said that he planned 
to do so until he had taught for a while 
at a co-educational college. — New York 
Evening Sun. 

An educational innovation, the basis of 
which will be taking motion pictures for 
classroom work, has been announced by 
Dr. Robert Maynard Hutchins, president 
of the University of Chicago. 

Production will begin shortly at the 
university on a series of 20 talkies on the 
physical sciences. Next fall they will be 
tried out on the members of the fresh- 
man class. 

Lectures by noted professors will be 
synchronized with the films, which can 
be repeated as often as necessary to bring 

home the lesson to the student.

Both Geneva College and Dickinson 
have seen James Hendricks and his com 
pany in Hamlet and The Merchant of 
Venice. This company was booked by 
the "L" Club to play on our campus last 
year but due to the Scarlet Fever quar- 
antine they could not appear. However 
quite a few students have seen this cast 
in other Shakespearean productions at 
the Hershey High School auditorium 
several years ago. 

Dr. Ritchie Talks To 
Life Work Recruits 


Paul the Apostle's Vision of Mace- 
donia Calling For 
Aid, Theme 



(Continued from Page One) 

Allan Ranck. The whole burlesqued af- 
fair was creditably performed and pro- 
voked much laughter among the lis- 

As the special musical feature of the 
evening, Allan Ranck presented an ex- 
cellent solo, "In A Monastery Garden." 
After finishing his solo, Mr. Ranck re- 
turned to his position as reader, and a 
burlesque of "The Highwayman" by 
Alfred Noyes was then presented. In 
this skit Charles Kraybill took the part 
of the highwayman and used a mop for 
his horse. The part of his loved one 
was taken by Charles Daugherty, per- 
forming for black-eyed Susan. Stuart 
Werner was the eavesdropping ostler 
while Kenneth Shaeffer and Clyde Ment- 
zer were the British regiment. This en- 
tertainment proved exceptionally funny 
as the hearty laughs from the audience 

Following this, the editor, Henry Pala- 
tini, gave an interesting report, filled 
with many stories and jokes. The cri- 
tic's report, given by James Hughes, 
concluded the program. 

The latter part of the evening was 
spent in enjoying a treat of cider, pret- 
zels, and cakes, and also a smoker. The 
social hour was continued until late in 
the evening with many of the guests 
joining in card games and having a gen- 
eral good time. 

The weekly meeting of the Life Work 
Recruits was held on Thursday evening, 
October 27, 1932, with Harry E. Zech, 
president in charge. The devotions were 
conducted by Homer E. Kendall, a new 
member of the organization. Another 
new student, Miss Helen Summy, ren- 
dered a vocal solo entitled "When I Sur- 
vey the Wondrous Cross." 

The Life Work Recruits have enlarged 
their program somewhat this year. The 
group has decided to meet weekly for a 
short period of devotions in North Hall 
parlor. The purpose of these meetings 
is to enliven the spiritual life of each 
member. Then twice a month in addi- 
tion to the devotions some speaker of 
note is invited to address the group. The 
speaker for the last meeting was Dr. G. 
A. Ritchie. 

Dr. Ritchie chose as the theme for his 
address Paul the Apostle's vision of the 
man of Macedonia calling to him to 
come over into Macedonia and help. 
He illustrated how the spirit of God 
worked in this particular case. On two 
separate occasions, Paul was prevented 
from going northeast into Asia Minor 
by visions from God. God called him 
to go into Macedonia and as a result 
Christianity was spread through Greece, 
and ultimately through Europe and 
America. He showed that humanity 
without a gospel constitutes the call. 
The Greek nation lacked the dynamic 
power of God. They worshipped in ig- 
norance of the true God. They needed 
God to enlighten their lives, and make 
their civilization for their day. 

At the conclusion of his talk, Dr. 
Ritchie challenged the entire group to 
interpret rightly the call of God. He 
stressed the fact that if the Lord calls a 
person and he answers not, he will never 
be satisfied. It does not pay to withhold 
a life from God. Are you permitting 
God to shape the course of your life? 
Be sure that your life is invested in the 
right way, and if you are called, join 
the Christian army. 

The meeting closed with the circle of 
prayer and the benediction by the

On Sunday night, in North Hall par- 
lor, a friendly hour radio program was 
given by the day student girls, with Mil- 
dred Nye as leader. The theme of the 
program was "Love." 

Miss Nye, as station announcer, first 
introduced Emnus Fasnacht who played 
the prelude "God is Love." This was 
followed by the singing of a hymn with 
the audience joining in. Miss Kathryn 
Witmer was then called upon to read the 
scriptures and lead the assembly in 

Miss Nye introduced Lucille Engle 
who gave the main talk of the evening, 
"Love." At the close of the speech, Miss 
Mary Grace Mills rendered a piano solo. 
Afterwards a series of short talks, deal- 
ing with "Love" was given. Catherine 
Wagner spoke on "God's Love Made 
Visible." Almeda Neidig spoke on "The 
Widening Circle," and Anne Butterwick 
on "The Greatest Value." To complete 
the discussion the radio announcer read 
a poem dealing with "Love." Miss Ger- 
aldine Harkins very inspiringly gave a 
vocal solo, after which the gathering 
joined in with the singing of a hymn. 
Miss Nye very cleverly ended the pro- 
gram with her station announcements 
and Miss Fasnacht tuned off the air by 
a postlude, bringing this delightful pro- 
gram to a close. 




Cast Selected For 

Junior Play 


Nine Characters In Play Selected 
By Dr. Wallace Who 
Will Direct 

The Junior class has put on its seven 
league boots and is bounding toward a 
shining goal with its new comedy, "The 
Importance of Being Earnest." The 
parts have been chosen and Dr. Wallace 
is calling for many rehearsals. There 
are nine characters in the cast. Gwen- 
dolyn, the acme of perfection for a 
young lady and very much in love, will 
be portrayed by Margaret Kohler. An 
equally delightful and light-hearted girl 
is Cecily — also very much in love. This 
part will be played by Mildred Nye. Only 
one thing is a drawback for the love of 
these young ladies — the gentlemen must 
be named Earnest. How their witty and 
debonair sweethearts, Jack (Allen Buz- 
zell) and, Algernon (Ray Johnson), 
overcome this obstacle forms an exciting 
and laugh-provoking plot. 

Another mile stone in love's pathway 
is Lady Bracknell, a pompous and over- 
bearing society matron who is on the 
lookout for profitable marriages. Miriam 
Book ably handles this part. 

Not content with having these com- 
plex love affairs, the play brings in the 
ridiculous infatuation of the saintly Dr. 
Chasuble, Fred Lehman, for the austere 
and prim Miss Prism, Cecily's govern- 
ness, Mary Gossard. Carl Long takes 
the part of Lane, Jack's butler, and 
Clyde Mentzer plays Merriman, Alger- 
non's butler. 

"The Importance of Being Earnest" 
is jovial from beginning to end. There 
is not a dull moment in it. The class of 
'34, in presenting this play, offers Leba- 
non Valley the chance to let loose and 
laugh. Who could ask for better laugh - 
provokers than the cast that has been

and song numbers that they had pro- 
duced in their minstrel last year. 

Jerry Russell sang "Bend Down Sis- 
Sister" in only that certain style that he 
can render. His philosophy on the 
waistline was happily accepted. 

Charles Hauck sang "Company's 
Coming Tonight." His manner of pre- 
sentation won the audience over to him 
at once. 

William Speg sang two ditties as only 
the Speg is able to render them. He 
gave some sound advice, especially to 
the freshmen who are newcomers on the 

Mr. Wilbur Mathias gave two violin 
solos. He played very skillfully "Lulla- 
by of the Leaves" and "Home." These 
were cleverly and masterfully handled by 
Mr. Mathias. 

"Babe" Earley gave a Cab Callaway 
version of "Saint Louis Blues," accom- 
panying himself on the piano. 

Mr. Warren Mentzer sang "When 
Candle Lights Are Gleaming." It was a 
bass solo, and proved to be a high point 
on the evening's program. 

For conclusion Mr. Kazlusky, as cap- 

tain of the football team, gave a short 
but inspiring speech. He sketched the 
importance of students' supporting the 
team, and how they should turn out for 
the future football games. 

The Kalo Minstrel sextet then gave a 
quick, snappy ending to the program by 
singing some old and modern tunes. 

President Krumbiegel then invited all 
the group to remain and participate in 
the smokes and eats. 

The hall was immediately filled with 
cries of fun and humor. Clever tricks 
and good fellowship prevailed until ten 
o'clock when the meeting came to an

gate of U. B. Church; Gradu- 
ate of Otterbein 

Miss Catherine Cole, Otterbein '32, 
paid a visit to our campus this week and 
addressed us on Tuesday morning in our 
chapel period. Miss Cole is the first of 
a group of students who are being sent 
to Africa by the United Brethren col- 
leges of North America. She, as the 
first representative, comes from Otter- 
bein College as its students contributed 
most towards the project. 

Miss Cole will spend two years in Mo- 
yamba, Africa, teaching in a girls' 
school. She gave an interesting talk on 
the administration of this school, of its 
pupils, what they are taught, and what 
is expected of her when she takes up her 
duties. Her duties will consist in teach- 
ing home arts to the girls. 

She thanked the Lebanon Valley stu- 
dents in helping along with the African 
project and expressed the wish that Leb- 
anon Valley would be able to send one 
of her students to Africa when she re- 
turns in two years. Lebanon Valley so 
far has contributed a sum next in size 
to Otterbein and therefor should be 
able to send one of her student's when 
Miss Cole returns. Incidentally, Miss 
Cole sails today from New York City 
for her new duties. 

We cannot help but spring to the de- 
fense of truth when someone lets fall a 
remark that, being a Christian, he can- 
not vote for Norman Thomas. We defy 
the person who said this to bring out

cialism (in ethics and religion — not 
monetary connections). For his further 
enlightenment may we say that Mr. 
Thomas himself is a Presbyterian minis-

Faculty Members Play 
Emys Blandingi 

In days of old when knights were 

The women washed the dishes. 
But in life today 'tis sad to say 
It's the men who are the fishes 

But knighthood is by no means dead. 
In fact it blooms in blushing modesty 
right here on the college campus. But 
the truth will out and to our ears comes 
the story of the thrilling capture of an 
Emys Blandingi by none other than Sir 
Struble and Sir Rutledge. 

Ye knichts, peradventure, had decid- 
ed to scale the rugged crest of Governor 
Dick Mountain in ye townshippe of 
Mount Gretna. 'Twas no tea partie, and 
sir knichts, equipped in full armor, sal- 
lied forth with the rising sun glinting 
on their shields and helmets and their 
lances swinging jauntily. 

About halfe waye up, Sir Struble was 
panting heavily, for the burden of fresh- 
manne themes at Ye College Schoole of 
King Arthur are a great wear and tear 
on the flower of manhood. "Climbe 
though ye path be rugged," cried Sir 
Rutledge in encouragement. On they 
pressed, but a hundred yards further on, 
just as they rounded a crest of sullen 
rocks, an Emys Blandingi confronted 
them. The horrible creature reared on 
his tail and snorted. Sir Struble was all 
for slaying the uglie beastie but his fel- 
low knicht remonstrated. Quickly whip- 
ping out his cornet, he burst in to the 
latest syncopation of "Minnie the 
Moocher's Wedding Day." Slowly the 
angry look left their adversary's eye. 
Ere many minutes he stalked majestic- 
ally over to Sir Struble and said — "May 
I have this dance?" 

"Ance-day and apture-cay im-hay 
live-ay," whispered Sir Rutledge in the 
code of ye Rounde Table. 

So away spieled the dancing pair and 
hotter and hotter grew the tones of ye 
cornet until the Emys Blandingi was 
seized in a bone crushing grip by his 
dancing partner. In short order, ye 
beaste was hog-tied and on its way to 
towne on a raile. 

"Ladye Rutledge will be well pleased," 
remarked her daring spouse as they en- 
tered the front doore of Castle Rutledge. 
He set the burden down on the parlor 
rug and called his wife. She entered and 
her face blanched — but not with fear. 

"Ande I juste cleaned up the parlor. 
Edward, get that filthy thing right out 
of here." As the disconcerted knights 
left the room she added, "You and 
George stay downtown for dinner. I'm 
too busy cleaning." 

The knichts, sorely disappointed, 
wended their way to Sir Derickson (the 
whiche knicht made of suche thinges an 
honourable hobbie). And there todaye 
may we see this proof of modern brav- 
ery. On a weste window of Ye Museum 
may be seen this Emys Blandingi. In 
fact, there is more than one of these 
box turtles there for your amusement.

convincingly where the real feeling of 
Lebanon Valley students lies. 

Voters Take Poll Seriously 

That the faculty and student body 
meant business on Monday morning was 
shown by the intent manner in which 
they attended to the routine of casting 
the ballots. The air was surcharged with 
the characteristic tenseness usually found 
at affairs of state and national impor- 
tance. There was little or no lobbying, 
although stanch supporters of the major 
candidates are reported to have been in- 
fluential in pre-vote activities. 

Representatives of LA VIE COLLE- 
GIENNE passed out specially printed 
ballots to the assembled students and fac- 
ulty, who indicated their choices and re- 
turned the marked ballots to tellers sta- 
tioned at the entrances. The counting 
of the ballots took place in strict pri- 
vacy in the presence of disinterested wit- 
nesses. The information here given is 
the first official pronouncement of the 

Classes Show Marked Differences 

A study of the table given at the head 
of this article indicates wide divergance 
of sentiment among the five groups rep- 
resented in the poll. That faculty sup- 
porters of Thomas do not exist and that 
Hoover backers are scarce among the 
seniors are shown immediately, but more 
subtle and important differences appear 
on closer statistical study. 

The following table shows the propor- 
tion of each group that voted for each 
of the candidates: 

Faculty vote, 83 r rfor Hoover, l7</r 
~ov Roosevelt. 

Senior vote, 70% for Hoover, 6% 
for Roosevelt, and 24 c /c for Thomas. 

Junior vote, 56% for Hoover, 22% 
for Roosevelt, and 22% for Thomas. 

Sophomore vote, 63% for Hoover, 
23% for Roosevelt, and 14% for Thom- 

Freshman vote, 69% for Hoover, 14% 
for Roosevelt, 14% for Thomas, and 3% 

Where Are the Liberals? 

If Hoover backers are conservatives, 
and other voters are considered as lib- 
eral, the poll indicates that the average 
student enters college a conservative, 
undergoes a liberalizing process until his 
senior year, and then emerges to join 
some faculty body as an ultra-conserva- 
tive. In other words, the sophomores 
and juniors cast a larger proportion of 
liberal votes than did the freshmen, 
seniors and faculty. 

The poll indicates that Socialist sym-

New York, N. Y. (NSFA) — At th, 
invitation of the National Student 
Federation, a group of between 20 
and 30 South African students will 
tour the United States in January 
1933. The trip will start from New 
York and will include Pittsburgh, Chi- 
cago, Cleveland, Buffalo, and many 
other of the colleges in the east and 
middle west. 

Plans are also being made for the 
entertainment of a group of French 
students in the country in the fall 
of 1933. 

pathy is nearly uniform throughout the 
student body, but that among the faculty 
it does not appear. Evidently the Fresh- 
man class contains all those students who 
may class themselves as infracanino- 
philes, for among the freshmen alone 
were found votes for the minor candi- 
dates, two Prohibitionists and one lone 

Women Vote for Hoover 
Although no accurate statistics were 
kept to show the relative vote of the 
men and women, the gathering and 
counting of the ballots indicated that the 
women cast a larger proportion of votes 
for Herbert Hoover than did the men. 
A separate checking also showed that 
the freshman boys were firm Hoover- 
ites, with few exceptions. 

In all, 338 votes were cast in La Vie's 
straw poll. Although this is not com- 
plete, it certainly represents a very good 
cross section of campus opinion. The 
utter inconsistency of the results with 
those obtained in larger polls is to be 
explained by the specialized group test- 
ed. However, straw votes in other col- 
leges revealed corresponding high plu- 
ralities for the Republican candidate.

Canadian Writers 
Topic of Discussion 
In Readers' Club 


Various Phases of Northern Liter- 
ature Proves Interesting 
To Members 

Readers' Club was held at the home of 
Dr. and Mrs. Wallace November 2, with 
Canadian Literature as the topic for 
discussion. Miss Mae Fauth had charge 
of the meeting. She explained the de- 
velopment of literature in Canada as an 
outgrowth of the adventures of hunters 
and trappers. It is through them that 
a history of the people has been pre- 

Miss Kathryn Leisey reported on Mar- 
jorie Pickthal's poetry, using "The Lamp 
of Poor Souls" and "The Woodcarver's 
Wife" as examples of this poet's work. 
Miss Leisey divided these poems into 
four classes — pure lyric, poetry with 
classical themes, patriotic poems, and re- 
ligious poems. Besides these divisions, 
Marjorie Pickthal's poetry, says Miss 
Leisey, "shows a faith in the morality 
and immorality of beauty, and is ex- 
pressive of sadness, joy and whimsical 
. mirth. Moreover, this poet never inter- 
prets her poems for the reader. After 
reading several poems to illustrate these 
various points, the discussion was turned 
over to Marian May who, after a short

The regular weekly meeting of Delta 
Lambda Sigma was held on Friday eve- 
ning, Nov. 4, in Delphian Hall. Devo- 
tions were conducted by Esther Smelse, 
acting chaplain, after which a very in- 
teresting program was presented. 

A very clever^ humorous skit, "A 
Hero to Tea," was a source of much 
amusement to the audience. The char- 
acters were the hero, Percival Merriwea- 
ther, who was portrayed by Mary Gos- 
sard; the girl, Annette, Gloria LaVan- 
ture, and the lovers, William Henry 
Burns and Betty Ford. 

Two beautiful numbers, " Paradise," 
and "Say It Isn't So," were splendidly 
harmonized by Harriet Miller and Mil- 
dred Christiansen, accompanied by Gem 

The program was brought to a riot- 
ous close by the Delphian jester, Trula 
Koch, who ma r 'e the new members feel 
right at home by her personal com- 

After a report from the critic, Flo 
Grimm, the se:sion was adjourned to a 
short business meeting. The pledges 
were given the first degree initiation, and 
after a social hour of bridge and dancing 
the meeting was brought to a close. 

Lebanon Valley 
Historians Hold 
Political Rally 


Springfield Eleven Romps Over 

Blue and White Warriors, 27-0 

Writers Organize 
A Campus Club 


Dr. and Mrs. Struble to Act In 
Advisory Capacity; Palatini 
To Head 

A group of people distinctly inter- 
ested in writing as an art me: at the 
home of Dr. and Mrs. Struble last Thurs- 
day. It was the organization meeting of 
a club to improve the writing ability of 
its members and to promote literary in- 
terest on the campus. The name chosen 
for this new unit was "The Green Blot- 
ter Club." 

Mr. Henry Palatini was chosen "Head 
Scoop" and Miss Betty Schaak was elect- 
ed "Keeper of the Word Horde." The 
meeting was then turned into a thor- 
oughly informal and witty discussion of 
plans for the future of the club. The 
scope of writing will be wide, embodying 
drama, poetry, fiction, travel, end biog- 
raphy. The group plans to write, and 
produce a play for invited guests in the 
future. For the next meeting Miss Mae 
Fauth will present the first chapter of a 
novel — the thread of which will be car- 
ried on chapter by chapter by different 
members of the organization. 

The new group is the only strictly 
literary organization which fosters origi- 
nal ability on the campus. The member- 
ship is exclusive — consisting entirely of 
people with marked writing ability who 
have sworn to work industriously toward 
the club's goal — the production of wor- 
thy Lebanon Valley manuscripts. 

The number of students, it was de- 
cided, will for the present be limited to 
four from each class to insure that the 
club be strictly composed of the cream 
of campus material and that the club 
have a successful existence. The mem- 
bership thus far is as follows: Seniors, 
Babs Earley, Mae Fauth, Walter Krum- 
biegel, Marion May; Juniors, Clyde

Republican, Democratic and Socia- 
list Views and Platforms 

Politics was the subject of discussion 
at the meeting of the History Club, held 
Wednesday evening, Nov. 2, in Kalo 
Hall. Only a small group was present 
on this occasion, but they were consider- 
ably enlightened concerning present po- 
litical issues through their attendance at 
the meeting. 

DeWitt Essick, president of the club, 
called the meeting to order. After a few 
words of introductory nature, he called 
for the presentation of the Democratic 
platform. Miss Arlene Heckrote re- 
sponded on behalf of the Democratic 
candidate and party. She gave an ex- 
cellent account of that party's platform, 
pointing out what they intend to do re- 
garding war debts, farm relief, prohibi- 
tion, etc. Present tariff was criticized 
severely and a lowering of tariff rates 
was one of the most interesting points 
in the whole platform. 

Walter Krumbiegel spoke next on be- 
half of his ideal, Norman Thomas and 
the Socialist party. He went into detail 
to point out the failures of the present 
administration and then pointed out the 
remedy in the adoption of socialism. 
Especially interesting were his party's 
views on disarmament and unemploy- 
ment. Their aim in the former case is 
said to work for complete world disarm- 
ament. The unemployment situation 
they would ease by making appropria- 
tions to special funds for the purpose of 
creating work. 

The Grand Old Party was represented 
by DeWitt Essick who spoke about the 
Republican candidates and their plat- 
form. As a defense to attacks of the 
critics he referred his audience to the 
party's past record. He spoke not en- 
tirely defensively but also described the 
promises of the party for this campaign. 
The maintenance of a high tariff and 
reference of the prohibition problem to 
the states for decision were some of the 
high points of the platform. 

Following these addresses the meeting 
was thrown open for general discussion 
with everybody participating. Vital 
questions concerning policies were inves- 
tigated and answered for the enlighten- 
ment of all in athendance. 





During the recreation period one 
evening last week, Mrs. Green enter- 
tained the freshraan girls of North 
Hall at a most delightful informal 
party. Two Sophomore girls, Olive 
Kaufman and Frances Keiser, served 
the dean and her twelve guests with 
very tempting refreshments. The 
party broke up after everyone had 
expresed their appreciation of a 
lovely time. 

On Friday afternoon, Kappa Lambda 
Nu was at home to her Freshmen pledg- 
es and old members. Miss Miriam Owen, 
Clio's first term president, received the 
guests with the help of Madame Green, 
who was faculty representative. Bridge, 
pinochle and five hundred were enjoyed 
by those present. Later, Mrs. Wallace, a 
patroness of Clio, presided at the tea 
table and delicious refreshments were 

This was the first of Clio's meetings 
to introduce to the society her new mem- 
bers. Since the affair went off in a most 
delightful and successful fashion, it is 
hoped these teas will become customary 
from year to year. The tea was but one 
of the many innovations introduced into 
Clio this year for the purpose of fur- 
thering her ideals of hospitality and so- 
ciability on the campus. 

Clio, at this time, wishes to thank 
Mrs. P. A. W. Wallace, Madame Green 
and Mrs. C. C. Gingrich for their part 
in making this affair the success that it 
was. To Miss Christine Gruber and her 
committee must be given all our praise 
for their untiring efforts in carrying out 
the wishes of the society in so satisfac- 
tory a manner. 


Professors Attend 
Educators' Meeting 


Profs. Wagner and Grimm Confer 
With Leading Authorities On 
Admission Problems 

On Wednesday afternoon, November 
2, Professors Wagner and Grimm left 
for New York to attend an educators' 
conference held at the Hotel St. Regis 
on Thursday. 

The p'jtfpose of the meeting was to 
discuss the leading problems confront- 
ing college authorities in the matter of 
admissions and admission requirements. 

At both the luncheon and the formal 
dinner, leading authorities spoke on 
pertinent subjects. Among them was Dr. 
William Setchel Learned, of the Carnegie 

While in New York, the Lebanon Val- 
ley professors attended a current Broad- 
way political satire and reported it to be 
very interesting. 

The program follows: 

First joint session, 10.00 a. m. — Dr. 
William S. Learned, Carnegie Founda- 
tion for the Advancement of Teaching, 

"Admission to College," Dr. William

Mylinmen Were Unable to Score 
Against Strong Bay State 

Lebanon Valley, apparently lacking 
the spirit that carried them to victory 
over Juniata and St. Joseph's on succes- 
sive Saturdays, journeyed to Springfield, 
Mass., and fell before a powerful run- 
ning attack to the tune of 27-0, Novem- 
ber 5. 

Hawkes, Shields and Brown of the 
Bay State aggregation, ran wild during 
the hour of play, the former scoring a 
touchdown in each of the first three 
periods. Shields scored in the second 
period by virtue of a pass from Brown. 
Lebanon Valley's offense that showed 
spurts of commendable strength in the 
last two tilts was stopped dead by a fast 
charging Springfield forward wall. Only 
in the fourth period when a blocked 
punt and forward pass carried the ball 
deep into Springfield territory was there 
any opportunity to score, but on each of 
these occasions the Maroon and White 
line held and Lebanon Valley resumed 
their defensive stand. 

Frank Boran, Blue and White quar- 
terback, was injured in the fray but from 
all indications he will be able to resume 
duties when the team encounters Mt. St. 
Mary's Saturday at Emmitsburg, Md. 
First Half 

Lebanon Valley received Brown's 
kick off and after failing to gain, Rust 
punted to Springfield's thirty yard line. 
A series of rushes brought no gain and 
an exchange of punts gave Springfield 
the ball at the close of the first five min- 
utes of play on their own 49 yard line. 
On a cutback to the right side of the 
line, Brown made 16 yards. Hawkes 
took the ball to L. V. C. 35 yard line on 
two plunges. A reverse, Hawkes to

Conservatory Students 
Attend Gapitol Recital 

The first concert of the Harrisburg 
Symphony Orchestra, for the season 
1932-1933, was given Thursday evening, 
November 3, in the William Penn Audi- 
torium in Harrisburg. 

The soloist for the evening was Otto- 
kar Cadek, violinist. Mr. George King 
Raudenbush is the conductor of the or- 
chestra. It is also interesting to note 
that in the orchestra are: Professor Har- 
old Malsh, teacher of violin at Lebanon 
Valley, and two freshman, Miss Martha 
Elser from Harrisburg, who is quite an 
accomplished violinist, and Mr. Leslie 
Saunders who has frequently displayed 
to us his ability on the trombone. 

The program included four move- 
ments from Dvorak's "Terzetto , Op. 
74"; three movements from "Concerto 
in E Minor, Op. 64," by Mendelssohn, 
beautifully interpreted by the soloist, 
Mr. Cadek; the "Tannhauser" Overture 
of Wagner; an Interlude of popular 
music, and four movements from Bee- 
tho ven's "Symphony No. 5 in C. Minor." 

The people from school who attended 
the concert are: Professor Rutledge, 
Miss Gillespie, Dr. and Mrs. Bender, 
Messrs. Theo. Walker, Robert Heath, 
Russell Hatz and Richard Slaybaugh.

A suggested explanation of the "con- 
servative" vote in chapel states that , the 
reason may lie in the fact that we come 
from conservative parents. The sugges- 
tion also added that conservative parents 
send their children to college, while the 
laborer does not for obvious reasons. 
The laborer is understood, of course, to 
be more radical. However, even this is 
a challenge. Must we always tread the 
marked highway? Are we incapable of 
independent thought? 

Doldrums are the usual aftermath of 
examinations. We lapse into a phleg- 
matic existence, and let things run as 
they please. After Christmas we will 
again shake off our lethargy and prepare 
for more examinations. Such is the hab- 
it. Can we break it? Is it possible to 
study normally all year 'round and not 
cram before an exam? We believe it can 
be done. Try it sometime. 

During the past few years the literary 
societies have played with the idea of 
merging in the presentation of their an- 
niversaries for the purpose of cutting 
expenses and the time necessarily in- 
volved. The idea is that one of the 
men's societies should hold their anni- 
versary in conjunction with one of the 
women's societies. This year the plan 
was again suggested, but unfortunately 
collapsed due again to that old society 
bugaboo, pride. However, we hope that 
some day the experiment will receive 
material consideration. 


Again the arrival of Armistice Day on 
Monday, November 11th recalls to mind 
one of the most dramatic days in all his- 
tory. Fourteen years ago, when all the 
world was sunk in despair with the end- 
less horrors engulfing it, into which it 
had flung itself stupidly, rmd seemed in- 
capable of ever escaping from, came 
the glorious news of the cessation of 
fighting, of mass murder and world-wide 

Since those days, there has grown up 
a desire for permanent peace, which has 
no parallel in the world's history. 

But while this longing for peace is be- 
coming deeply ingrained in the hearts 
of men, the fortunes of nations and the 

exigencies of the time offer no real as- 
surances of its permanence. Those who 
seek peace will have to wage tireless war 
and unending propaganda to make 
peace as popular as war has always been 
and as imperishable as the sacred rights 
of mankind. As the sage of scientists, 
the world-famous Professor Albert Ein- 
stein, recently said in his letter to the 
War Registers International meeting in 
Lyons, France: 

"Those who think that the danger 
of war is past are living in a fool's 
paradise. We have to face today a 
militarism far more powerful and 
destructive than the militarism which 
brought the disaster of the World 

"This is the achievement of Govern- 
ments. But among the peoples the idea of 
war resistance spreads. You must chal- 
lingly and fearlessly extend this idea 
You must lead the people to take dis- 
armament into their own hands and to 
declare that they will take no part or lot 
in war or in the preparation of war. 
You must call upon the workers of all 
countries unitedly to refuse to become 
the tool of death-dealing interests." 
"Let this generation take the 
greatest step forward ever made in 
the life of man. Let it contribute 
to those who follow the inestimable 
right of a world in which the bar- 
barity of war has been forever re- 
nounced. We can do it if we will. 
It requires only that all who hate 
war shall have the courage to say 
that they will not have war." 

"I appeal to all men and women, 
whether they be eminent or humble, 
to declare before' the World Disarm- 
ament Conference meets at Geneva 
in February, that they will refuse to 
give any further assistance to war 
or the preparations for war." 
Armistice Day is a fitting time to re- 
flect on the greatest debacle in the his- 
tory of man. An honest reply to the 
question, "What was accomplished? Did 
they die in vain?" will prove a great 
value in appraising the victories on the 
battlefield. In proportion to the degree 
in which Armistice Day makes people 
peace conscious, so great is its benefits. 


Vox Populi 


Freshmen — how many of you stop to 
think now and then that you have three 
more years of association together on 
our campus? Perhaps the thought does 
not mean much to you now, but if seri- 
ous consideration were given to the fact 
that things you say and do now will 
have a marked influence upon your col- 
lege career, you might desist from some 
habits which you now have. Loyalty and 
trustworthiness are two standards to 
achieve. The motto of any successful, 
popular student is not "Do others before 
they do you." Right now is the time for 
you to realize that other people have 
privileges, too, and that once upper- 
classmen were denied the same things 
you seemingly can't take now! If you 
want the friendship of others, if you 
would have your few short years here 
be happy ones, if you want to keep the 
respect of others as well as your self- 
respect — take it on the chin! It certain- 
ly won't be held against you. What do 
you think? 

Mussolini's amnesty decree has been 
approved by the Italian Cabinet. Many 
criminally charged men will benefit by it 
— especially those guilty of petty anti- 
Fascist discourtesies. It is one of Musso- 
lini's dramatic gestures. He says that, 
rather than showing a weakness, this act 
will prove the Fascist disdain of their 
opponents. What a man you are, Mus- 
solini! You and Walter Hampden! 

David Selznick, vice-president of 
RKO, believes that modern films cater to 
juvenile intelligence. The movies today, 
according to him, will be laughed at 
three years hence. I blush in shame 
when I think of all the movies I've been 
thoroughly enjoying of late. "Grand 
Hotel," I suppose, was an excellent pic- 
ture for digestion by juveniles. 

It surprises me that our friend, Ma- 
hatma Gandhi, has not been signed up 
for American movies. There is a man 
who has managed to keep a prominent 
place in the newspapers in spite of the 
length of Hoover's and Roosevelt's cam- 
paign speeches and other election news. 
His latest escapade was the threat of an- 
other fast since the caste Hindus have 
violated the Poona pact. Poor Mahatma! 
He'll be able to use a lace doilie for a 
loin cloth soon.

Ah, Mr. Hoover, you big romancer, 
you. It took some traveling engineers 
to discover that thirty years ago Mr. 
Hoover (he was just "Herbie" then) 
penned love lyrics to Lou Henry, now 
Mrs. Hoover. My Dad was put in jail 
for eloping with my mother, who was 
jailed also. They bribed the jailer to 
carry in love letters back and forth be- 
tween them. But poor Dad never got a 
whole column in the New York Times 
for that like Mr. Hoover did for one 
common love lyric. 

The students of economics at Rutgers 
operate a bank with a two hundred dol-

The National Contract and Auction 
Bridge Exposition at the Grand Central 
Palace in New York City was a total 
failure. Its promoter filed a petition of 
bankruptcy twelve hours before the 
main event — a bridge match to be refer- 
eed by Culbertson himself. One expla- 
nation was that, although there "are 
lots of people interested in bridge, they 
are not interested enough to pay 75 
cents." My explanation is that the ma- 
jority of bridge players are conceited 
enough to believe they can't be taught 
75 cents worth. 

At Lapwai, Idaho, Chief James Mc- 
Connville made a stump speech for 
Roosevelt in the Nez Perce tongue to 
150 of his tribesmen. This was the first 
Indian emulation of a paleface political 
rally. Shades of Sitting Bull and Chief 
Mugwamp. In short time we'll all be 
motoring out to the reservation for a 
round of bridge and some afternoon tea. 

Even China is going to the women. 
Peiping is inaugurating its first depart-

Public Safety is placing 1000 young 
women into the three months training 
school run by a woman who has been 
through one of our metropolitan schools. 
One of the chief duties of this squad 
will be to warn Chinese country lassies 
of the dangers of life in the big city. 

Miss Edna Graham, '28, and Dr. G. 
Paul Moser, ex-' 28, were married on 
August 4 at St. Paul's Lutheran Church 
in Millersville, Pa. Mrs. Kitty Hagner 
Bixler, '30, was matron of honor. 

After Mrs. Moser graduated from L. 
V. C, she continued her work in bio- 
logical sciences in the graduate schools 
of Penn State and the University of 
Pittsburgh, and taught in Moorestown, 
N. J., and Conemaugh, Pa. 

Dr. Moser graduated from Jefferson 
Medical College and served interneship 
in the Lee Hospital, Johnstown, and in 
the Geisinger Memorial Hospital, Dan- 

Dr. and Mrs. Moser are now living in 
Ringtown, Pa., where Dr. Moser is prac- 
ticing medicine and surgery. 

On September 17, in the parsonage 
of the First Church, Spokane, Washing- 
ton, the Rev. G. H. Hartman, '19, of The 
Dalles, Oregon, was married to Rev. 
Minnie A. Hall, Bucyrus, Ohio. The 
ceremony was performed by Bishop Ira 
D. Warner and afterwards the newlyweds 
were given a wedding dinner. 

Rev. Hartman is pastor of his church 
at The Dalles and has been for ten years 
a leader in the Oregon Conference. Af- 
ter a honeymoon trip to Idaho, Rev. and 
Mrs. Hartman will take up their work in

He's naturally argumentative and bent

paid for his time. 

The Philadelphia-Lebanon Valley Club 
met at the Hotel Rittenhouse on Novem- 
ber 5. Many alumni and former students 
turned out. The party was served din- 
ner following which there were several 
speakers: Hon. W. H. Kreider, '94; Ad- 
miral D. E. Desmukes, Mr. Gardner T. 
Saylor, '32; Rev. Harry Ulrich, '13; Prof. 
S. H. Derickson, '02, and Acting Presi- 
dent J. R. Engle. 

New officers were chosen for the com- 
ing year. The meeting was a most suc- 
cessful and enjoyable affair, made pos- 
sible through the cooperation of the 
president, his official staff, and loyal 
alumni within the vicinity of Philadel- 
phia. The alumni were glad to hear of 
the progress being made in Lebanon 
Valley and encouraged to know that the 
present student body and faculty are ad- 
vancing with leaps and bounds. 

The Rev. Paul E. V. Shannon, '18, 
pastor of the Bethlehem United Brethren 
Church in Dallastown, and Miss Kathe-

Rev. Shannon's fifth year as pastor at 
the Dallastown church where he has had 
a very successful pastorate.

Pete Kandrat — "You're right, but that

Professor Gingrich (speaking on the 
value of education) — Yes, what can take 
the place of a university education? 
Nothing. Look at the man who only

Albright, our traditional rival, went 
into the air at Ithaca, N. Y., last Sat-

the powerful Cornell team. Although 
Cornell by defeating them 40-14 showed 
that their line can be penetrated, there

usual. Wogan and Captain Murphy in 
the center of the line both played a 
reat game defensively as well as offen- 
ively. Smith played a smart game at 
end while Lesher, frosh halfback, was 
on the receiving end of quite a few of 
Charlie Rust's passes. 

Mt. St. Mary's, L. V. C.'s next oppo- 
nent, won a three touchdown victory 
over Washington College at Emittsburg 
last Saturday. The Saints always point 
to the Lebanon Valley game as thei 
main game of the season and will be out 
for revenge this year for the 7-6 trim- 
ming handed to them last year. 

According to Lebanon Valley's 1933 
football schedule, the Mylinmen play 
Albright on Saturday, Nov. 25, in Read- 
ln g. as is the case this year.

Shields, gained 18 yards and on the next 
play Hawkes carrying the ball on a well 
executed spinner play dashed 17 yards 
to score. The plunge for the extra 
point failed. After the kickoff an ex- 
change of punts gave Springfield the 
ball on their own 39 yard line as the 
quarter ended. 

The Blue and White line held and 
Brown kicked out of bounds on L. V 
one yard line. Rust kicked from behind 
his own goal line and Roberts ran it 
back to the 38 yard strip. Hawkes and 
Brown made 36 yards on six cutback and 
spinner plays, bringing the ball to L 
V.'s 2 yard strip. Hawkes hit through 
guard for the score and kicked the ex 
tra point from placement. Stone fumb 
led Brown's kick off and Springfield re- 
covered on Lebanon Valley's 32 yard 
line. The Blue and White line held but 
from a fake kick formation Brown threw 
a beautiful pass to Shields who caught 
the ball on the 2 yard line and scored 
standing up. Brown kicked the extra 

Brown kicked off and Rust returned 
the ball to his own 48 yard line — a 
sprint of 34 yards. Boran gained 15 
yards off tackle for L. V.'s first down 
and followed it up with five through cen- 
ter. Rust added three around end. Pa- 
trigio lost six yards when he was thrown 
behind the line- by Wells. Springfield 
took the ball on their own 25 yard line 
as the half ended. Score: Springfield 
20, L. V. 0. 

Second Half 
Lebanon Valley came back and exe- 
cuted a neat passing attack at times but 
to no avail Rust passed to Lesher for 
17 yards and on the next play the 
same combination netted 1 1 yards. 
Brown intercepted Rust's pass and ran 
it back to his own five yard line. The 
Blue and White line fought gamely but 
Hawkes carried it over after three 

The last quarter was filled with excite- 
ment as Lebanon Valley's passing attack 
carried them to the home team's 15 yard 
strip. Rust to Lesher was the main com- 
bination. Here Springfield held for 
downs but Kazlusky broke through and 
blocked Shields' punt and recovered it 
on their own 20 yard line. Williams 
gained two yards around end but Spring- 
field's defense tightened and no score 
was obtained. Springfield punted and 
Lebanon Valley completed two out of 
six attempted passes as the game ended. 

Wogan, Kazlusky and Volkins dis- 
played nice defensive work during the 
major portion of the game in the center 
of the line, with Smith, Kandrat and 
Williams playing good defensive wings. 
Rust, Whiting and Lesher turned in the 
best performances in the backfield, both 
offensively and defensively. 

The services of "Scoop" Feeser, who 
failed to make the trip due to a back in- 
jury received in the St. Joseph's game, 
were sorely missed. "Scoop" is recover- 
ing, however, and is expected to see 
plenty of action in the remaining games.

At 10:30 Saturday night, a mysterious 
phone call was sent to the boys' dorm. 
A low, husky voice came in melodra- 
matic whisper over the wires. 
"Hello, men's dorm?" 
"Yes, Frank Cullather speaking." 
"Round up a rescue party of freshmen 
boys and send them to the big hollow 
tree across from Dr. Wagner's home." 

"I'll do it," said Cully in a quaking 

Ten minutes later the rescue party 
rounded the corner of the Ad building. 
A dark form stepped out from behind 
the tree. The Frosh halted, Cully 
stopped too. 

"Is this the rescue party?" 
"Yes," said the voices, trying to be 
brave in such a critical moment — re- 
member, they were freshmen. 

The mysterious stranger, in a sibilant 
whisper, hissed "She's been up there for 
nigh onto three days, men, and crying 
as if her little heart would break — I, I 
suspect foul play. Those three young 
ruffians who have been haunting the 
hockey field these last few days don't 
look trustworthy to me." 

"Well, something's got to be done 
about this, fellows," said Dick Huber, 
the captain of the rescuing squad. Im- 
mediately three recruits dashed to Bol- 
ton's garage for a ladder and flashlight. 

Vernon Hemperly, at risk of life and 
limb, climbed to the first limb of the 
tree. There he majestically stood, like 
our own daughter of liberty, with the 
torch in his upraised hand. Good little 
Vernon! Brave little Vernon! He shot 
the searching rays into the murky depths 
of the trees. Owls soared out of the 
darkness. Horrible, fluttery objects 
crawled back into the night. Still Ver- 
non held the torch. 

The ladder was placed by almost 
superhuman effort against the tree. All 
cringed back from scaling the fearful 
heights, fraught with so many nameless 
dangers. Finally, throwing back his 
broad shoulders, Anthony Jagnesak, the 
erstwhile pride of Padooka High School, 
stepped forward. The crowd, which had 
now collected around the thrilling scene, 
roared with enthusiasm. Cheer-leaders 
broke into action. The brave rah! rah! 
of the college mob split the silence. Jag- 
ensak started his perilous climb. The 
cries from the tree-tops were becoming 

To the two Gruber brothers, the ardu- 
ous task of holding the ladder was as- 
signed. Huber covered himself with 
glory by lifting his voice above the tu- 
mult and shouting directions to Jagne- 
sak in the lofty branches above. Loose 
and Cullather were efficient directors of 
the ground work. 

Jagnesak approached; higher, and 
higher he climbed. In the flashlight 
rays, the staring eyes and the tip of the 
ear of the victim could be seen. How 
she got up there must be attributed to 
a "peculiar happenstances," (consult 
Reynold's Dictionary). 

Jagnesak gained his destination. He 
climbed out on the limb. An ominous 
cracking was heard. Gingerly he climbed 
out. He reached her, and drew her ten- 
derly into his arms. A great shout went 
up from the crowd. Then began the 
low journey downward. 

The rescuer's foot slipped, a shriek 
went up from below. "If you fall, you'll 
hurt her," piped Janey Bricker, quite 
hite with fear. But the gods were kind, 
it was not written in his fate to come to 
such an end. 

The emotion of the crowd was bound- 
less as his foot reached terra firma. Good 
old terra firma! For a moment he bent 
over her lovingly. Then placed her 
gently upon the ground. A path was 
formed through the crowd as the scraw- 
ney, half-grown alley cat made a dash 
for freedom. 

The crowd dispersed, the moon came 
out, and peeping from under the Con- 
servatory porch a tiny kitten knelt and 
thanked God for the present freshmen

v^/ telephone home after 8:30 P. M. 

The folks are at home — your time is free — it's just 
the time for a family "get-together." 

Best of all, at 8:30 P. M. low Night Rates go into 
effect on Station to Station calls. Call home tonight 
and take advantage of the saving. A Station to Station 
call is for a telephone — not for a specific person. 
You just give the operator your home telephone

"date" to call again next week. Charges, of course, 
can always be reversed.

Charles Morgan in his third novel has 
brought to the English reading publicj 
one of the best modern novels for the 
year. "The Fountain" repeats the theme 
which has been so popular since 1914 — 
the World War. But Mr. Morgan lays 
his scene in the neutral state of Holland 
and we see the war from a different 
angle than we saw it in Canfield's "The 
Deepening Stream" and Remarque's "All 
Quiet on the Western Front." 

Lewis Alesan with other British offi- 
cers has been captured and sent into 
Holland by the Germans until the war 
ends. The place of exile is an old fort 
where the majority of men become rest- 
less and discontented. Alesan, however, 
finds this solitude the first real comfort 
in his life; for he has had to work for 
others before entering the war. Here at 
last he feels that he can accomplish his 
writing which has been his greatest de- 
sire. Thus he starts. "The form of the 
book must be historical, following the 
development of spiritual concept in Eng- 
land since the Renaissance and relating 
them with the philosophies of a remoter 
past." To .do this he believes he must 
live in the past. 

But his work is interrupted at the end 
of a year by a visit of the Baron and 
Baroness van Leyden to the fort. The 
Baroness had known Lewis as a young 
man through a former marriage to an 
English author and Lewis had tutored 
her daughter Julie. 

So it happens that the quiet life of 
Lewis is ended and he is given permis- 
sion to live on the estate of Pieter Van 
Leyden. Julie tells him of her marriage 
to Rupert Merwitz, a German officer, 

which was arranged by her mother when 
Julie was but eighteen years old. And 
even though she is only twenty she re- 
alizes that she cannot love her husband 
because of national differences. So 
strong is her hatred for the German and 
the foreign land in which she resides 
that the coming of Lewis has been a 
source to relieve her anti-German feel- 

The result of this friendship is, of 
course, a love affair; made enchanting 
because of the atmosphere of the castle 
and the unconcerned attitude of the 
Dutch toward the war. But in 1919 Ru- 
pert comes back to Julie a wreck of a 
man. The depth of Rupert's love for 
Julie and the friendship and interest he 
shows toward Lewis causes the reader to 
realize that turmoil and strife between 
nations is nothing compared to the in- 
tellectual yet sympathetic attitude these 
two men show toward each other. The 
astounding fact lies in the author's abil- 
ity to show how a frail and feeble love 
can be built up and rounded by the 
perfect understanding of the one with 
whom we sympathize most. 

The story, of course, contains a great 
many interesting characters. Soldiers 
of all types, Dutchmen, slow kind, igno- 
rant and scheming Dutchmen. The at- 
titude of the Dutch was pro-Germaip 
yet they credited the English when credit 
was due. But throughout the story the 
Hollanders appeared comparatively calm 
whenever the war was discussed. It is the 
mixture of the neutral point of view with 
the English and German characters which 
makes this book outstanding. Morgan 
seems to have solved the Anti-German 
feeling because of his cleverly molded yet 
absolutely sincere character — Rupert

A fine how do you do! A fine how 
do you do! First the editor comes to me 
and sez no copy. Wadduyoumen,? sez I. 
We ain't got enough copy, sez he. So? 
remarks me, trying to look dumb which 
ain't tough. So? Sez he, beginning to 
warm. So? So you'll write me a column 
of 2000 words. Waddyamean? responds 
me, trying to get calloused. So I'm try-

And this hands me a guffaw. "Make it 
funny," sez he, leaving. But don't mind 
him. He don't know from nothing. But 
that ain't all. 

So I. warms up the typewriter with a 
couple of xes and a couple of dees and 
begins chasing the cooties in my hair. 
Not one lousy idea filters through.

or four words of questionable virtue and 
looks around for candles. LA VIE must 
go on! Sez me. But I gets me a couple 
of tapers and goes back to work. How- 
ever, it must now be understood that I 
ain't to blame for what happens. These 
two tapers ain't functioning properly, if 
you get what I mean. One is about three 
or four feet in heighth and the other 
about one sixteenth of a milimeter. The 
big one is red, the other is white. The

the nature of an informal discussion 
upon the presidential candidates. Ches-

tory of the capture of Quebec. It cred- 
its the downfall of this city to the fail- 
ure of the French to colonize and failure 
of the government to realize the value 
of New France. 

Jane Muth read several sections of 
Leacock's "Essays and Literary Stud- 
ies" to show the type of humor and wit 
which that author possessed. She like- 
wise discussed his viewpoints on O. Hen- 
ry whom he believes is the true writer of 
American Life. 

Miss Miriam Owen criticized the po- 
etry of Bliss Carmen and used in con- 
trast Masefield and Kipling. She says, 
"Carmen deals with the deeper things 
of life and that he has remarked that a 
wise state should force the man who 
liver, in the country to write of the woods 
and fields." Carmen writes two distinct 
types of poetry — religious and that 
which appeals to the artist or poetry of 
a discriptive nature. 

The last number on the program was 
a discussion of Sir Parker Gilbert who 
is a popular novelist in the states though 
at present considered rather a poor ex- 
ample of. the Canadian novelists. His 
book, "Minds of the Mighty," also dealt 
with the capture of Quebec and the Sev- 
en Years War. 

After this report, the membership and 
dues of this year's club were discussed.

quired but had received no definite news 
concerning the appearance of "Mourn-

Homer Kendall Builds 
Model of Globe Theatre 

Have you seen the Globe theatre of 
London? No — not the original one of 
Shakespeare's age, but an exact repro- 
duction of it which has been brought to 
the campus by Homer Kendall, a Fresh- 
man from Hagerstown, Maryland. This 
reproduction has been on display sev- 
eral times in Dr. Wallace's English room 
and everyone who has been fortunate 
enough to see it will agree that it is a 
marvelous piece of handicraft. So if 
you have missed the opp* r' unity of 
viewing it, look for it in the near future 
m Dr. Wallace's room, or go to the of- 
fice and ask there for a chance to see it. 

As mentioned befoia, the piece is an 
e *act reproduction of the Globe iheatre 
,n London, at which theatre Shakespeare 
Presented most of his plays and did much 
°f his acting. This was the home of 
Shakespeare's stock company an! was

Student prayer meeting was held in 
Delphian Hall Wednesday evening, 
November 9. Allan Ranck had charge 
of the meeting. Stewart Werner gave 
a talk. He chose as his subject "For- 
eign Missions." He spoke of the ob- 
ject of missionary work. In the for- 
eign field, denominations should be 
forgotten, and all should work to- 
gether. At this time it is necessary to 
ask whether foreign missionary activ- 
ity is worth its keep. Considering the 
great work that even one man can do 
in a foreign field, there is no doubt a; 
to the value of this movement. How- 
ever, missionary work is not confined 
to the foreign field. Each one can do 
his bit right at home. 

Although it has not been the custom 
to celebrate Armistice Day to any great 
extent at Lebanon Valley College, the 
Faculty decided to devote the Chapel 
period on Friday, November 11, to that 

The College Chorus, a new organiza- 
tion under the direction of Prof. Rut- 
ge of the conservatory faculty, made 
initial appearance before the students, 
ging several patriotic numbers. The 
well-rendered selections were just another 
indication of the fine work that is being 
done in the department of music. 

The address of the morning was de- 
livered by Dr. H. H. Shenk, Professor 
of History and Custodian of the Public 
Records of the state of Pennsylvania. 
Dr. Shenk, in be^^mg, said that if he 
were to choose a text, he would go to the 
prophe Micah where he says "What 
doth^flH^^^^J^^mphce but to do 
justly, to love mercy, and to walk humb- 
ly with the Lord thy God." He went on 
to show that American soldiers have uni-

ture verses for this part of the program. 

The theme of the evening, "War and 
World Peace," was introduced by the 
first speaker, John Zech, whose subject 
was "Is War Ever Legitimate?" It was 
interesting to note the several possible 
attitudes which human beings take to 
this question. The speaker summed up 
the situation by saying that he doubted 
if many of the wars have ever been legi-

"Murphy" Kazlusky and his Lebanon Valley gridders went down to Edis Field, 
Hmmitsburg, Md., last Saturday and came back on the long end of the score after 
outplaying Mount St. Mary's in every period to win, 9-0. 

The first quarter was a kicking duel with the L. V. boys being benefited by a 
trong wind which continually whipped the playing field. 

In the second period Lebanon Valley gained steadily on rushes and several 
good passes, and placed the ball on the Mountaineers' 30 yard line. From this 
joint Rust swept around left end for the first score. Stone kicked the goal from 

The last hall consisted mostly of an exchange of punts, Joe Lynch of the 
Mountaineers, kicking 50 and 60 yards^ 

on each attempt. In the last minutes of 
play, the Marymen, due to a 15 yard 
penalty, were backed up to their 1 yard 
line. McCormack, attempting to kick 
from behind his own goal line, could not 
get the ball off in time, and attempted to 
run it out. He was tackled in the end 
zone, giving L. V. C. a safety and two 
more points. 

Rust was the speed king for Lebanon 
Valley. Besides making the touchdown, 
he gained more ground that the other 
backs combined. The Lebanon Valley 
line was immovable on the defense and 
played a stellar game from end to end. 
Kazlusky and Wogan, playing their last 
game against the Mountaineers, turned 
in good performances. Hopkins, at end 

and Ferko, a tackle, played great defen- 
sive games for Mt. St. Mary's. 

First Period 

St. Mary's received on their own 20 
and after two poor stabs at the line 
punted to L. V. on the 40 yard line. 
Stone made 20 off right tackle and on 
the next play St. Mary's intercepted 
Rust's pass on their own 7 yard line but 
fumbled the ball on the 10. L. V. recov- 
ered but fumbled on the next play. St. 
Mary's punted out of danger. The rest 
of the period was a punting duel mostly 
in the Mountaineers' territory. 

Second Period 

St. Mary's received on their own 35

Dear Sir: 

At its meeting October 3, the fac- 
ulty of Albright College expressed a 
desire that its Student Body begin ne- 
gotiations with the Student Bodies of 
Lebanon Valley and Ursinus Colleges 
in order to prevent the painting and 
otherwise mutilating of each other's 
campuses in connection with football 

The Student Council of Albrigh 
will take the matter before the Stu- 
dent Assembly and ask it to a^ree 
that it will not repeat the practices 
of former years. We would like to 
have you cooperate with us in this 
and present the same before your 
Student Body if you so desire 
Sincerely yours,

THURSDAY, NOV. 17, 1932 


These last years have been lean years 
for Lebanon Valley in regards to our 
football relations with Albright. The 
present senior class has yet to see an L. 
V. victory over our traditional rival. 
And this Saturday will be the last chance 
they will have in witnessing a struggle 
between the two schools during their un- 
dergraduate stay. Their plea for victory 
then, is doubly urgent. 

But what are our chances? Last year 
we suffered a defeat too horrible to men- 
tion. Have we recuperated? Are our 
prospects brighter? Reports from reli- 
able sources seem to indicate that this is 
OUR year. On paper, in view of the 
Mount St. Mary tussel, Albright is four 
points better than we are, but anything 
can happen in a football game. We will 
never concede an Albright game no mat- 
ter what' figures on paper say! 

Albright, we have also been informed, 
has a good aerial attack. Our boys, how- 
ever, know about that. The Albright 
line plays and end runs have proven 
mediocre. We have a good aerial at- 
tack and better running plays. Con- 
clusion: WE WILL WIN! 

But eleven men can't lick a few thou- 
sand. And you can rest assured that 
Albright will have a few thousand fight- 
ing for them, not on the field, perhaps, 
but in stands. Therein lies our fight! 
Everybody MUST attend! The band 
will be there and the alumni will be 
there, hence nothing should prevent us 
from going. You will see a magnificent 
spectacle. You will see LEBANON 


La Vie Collegienne has received many 
contributions of copy in the Contribu-

literary effusions have appeared in the

their authors. But others of these con-

have been unsigned, and thus could not 
be considered. 

All contributions of copy, dropped in-

Fritz Kreisler Heard 
By Conservatory People 

On Wednesday evening, November 
16, 1932, the second feature of the Haage 
Concert series was presented at the Rajah 
theatre in Reading. Fritz Kreisler, world 
renowned violinist and composer, was 
the artist. 

Fritz Kreisler, besides being an accom- 
plished violinist, is a pianist of no mean 
ability, often arranging the accompani- 
ments for his violin numbers. 

Mr. Kreisler is the composer of the 
popular "Old Refrain," "Caprice Vien- 
nois," and "Liebesf reud." Among his 
arrangements are "Londonderry Air" 
and "Liebslied." 

The concert Wednesday evening was 
the only appearance Mr. Kreisler will 
make in this locality this season. 

Quite a number of people from the 
campus had the privilege of hearing the 
concert on Wednesday. They included: 

Dr. and Mrs. Bender, Dr. and Mrs. 
Wagner, Mr. and Mrs. Rutledge, Mrs. 
Green, Miss Gillespie, Miss Myers, Miss 
Moyer, Professors Stokes, Campbell and 
Crawford, Misses Sharp, Lutz, Oyler, 
Ely, Thrush, Heckman, Bonanni, Elser, 
Summers, Deitrick, Butterwick, Daugh- 
erty, Deisher, Gorrecht and Messrs. 
Stone, Walker, Heath, Hatz, Slaybaugh, 
Shuler, Sausser, and Johnson.

plete and exact copy of the Globe, as 
one glance at its detail will indicate. The 
idea came to him after seeing a picture 
of the Globe theatre, and immediately 
he seized upon the idea of building one 
exactly like it. He spent some time in 
gathering material for his plans from 
several books, while a picture of the 
front part of the stage was also an aid. 
As for the actual construction, it took 
six months to complete the project, fin- 
ishing it just in time for a special ob- 
servance of Shakespeare's birthday last 
year. Mr. Kendall did most of the work 
only after school hours during his Se- 
nior year, and thus it took a great deal 
of time and patience to finish it. 

The reproduction is made entirely of 
wood, excepting, of course, the glue and 
nails, has the shape of an octagon, and 
stands about two feet high. Mr. Kendall 
states that it was done entirely by hand 
except for one single groove on the ban- 
nister inside the theatre. It is minute in 
every respect even to the trap door on 
the stage, the unusual feature is the fact 
that each single piece fits no other place, 
everything having been constructed so 
that the benches are of different sizes 
and even the one exterior of the theatre 
inclines more than the other.

Tsk, Tsk; Or Notes of 
A Female Columnist 



The band is all pepped up for the 
big Albright game on Saturday. All 
the uniforms have now arrived so ev- 
ery member will be able to be on 
parade. The band has been practic- 
ing marching and letter forming all 
this week, with a vim, and by Satur- 
day they will be able to compete with 
any band. A quantity of new music 
has increased the repertoire of the 
organization. Much praise is due this 
wide-awake group and their leader. 

I'm afraid that the old joke of asking 
a frosh girl to join the Jersey Club is 
having evil effects. The freshmen girls 
are refusing to take anything seriously 
One sweet young thing confidentially 
giggled into my ear after chapel the 
other day, "They can't fool me on that 
Art Club. There isn't any such thing! 
I've been told it means the freshmen 
boys who have to print the signs they 
wear on their backs!" I still fail to see 
where "I am a lady's man" and "Just 
another cocky freshman" are works of 

Ruth Garner unconsciously pulled a 
bitter sweet joke and poor Sammy walked 
away with his head bowed. She gushed 
forth, one fair morning, "Oh, yes, and 
speaking of dogs! I had a mongrel one 
time. I liked it so much that I named it 
Sammy!" Oh, this Christening business! 

Dot Ely is a true blue musician but 
she loses her bearings every time she get 
started on, "Ida, sweet as apple cider." 
Perhaps it's because she tries to make her 
music too realistic. 

Here are some things to think over 
"while waiting for a bus or trolley car." 
"Russ" Williams' favorite topic for dis- 
cussion is feminine seductiveness. It 
seems that he's been making observa- 
tions. "Pete" Kandrat told me he knows 
all about social pressure. Psychologically 
speaking, "Pete?" 

Gem Gemmill was razzed because she 
said, "Now that I've had my knot cut 
off, I feel sort of light-headed. It 
weighed me down terribly." Keep your 
head on your shoulders, Gem. You've 
got to show 'em, now that you have 
brains to use as an anchor, as well as 
your lately departed knot. 

Poor Helen Lane complained the 
other day, "I could eat and eat and eat 
and never get fat." "Red" Wogan just 
says, "I could eat and eat and eat and 
eat, etc. 

Can you imagine innocent little Peg 
Weaver, saying "Gee, I wish that this 
year, for Clio, they'd do away with all 
the razzing. Why it's getting to be so 
bad around here that you can't enjoy th^ 
morning after the night before, any- 

But I'm serious, too, when I make a 
plea for less razzing and less joe-hoss in- 
sinuations. They may be campus tradi- 
tions, but how about doing a breakaway? 

"If I cut a beefsteak in two," asked 
Prof. Wagner, "then cut the halves i n 
two, what do I get?" 

"Quarters," said Wampler. 

"Good! And then again?" 


"Correct! Again?" 


"Exactly! And what then?" 


"And once more?" 

"Hamburger," replied our cheer-lead- 

Mim Owen discussing her summer job 
as head waitress — "They say that meat- 
eating makes one ferociohs. The mad- 
dest man I ever saw was one who had 
just eaten a caterpillar with his lettuce." 

Kraybill— "Yo u woke me out of a 
sound sleep." 

Goodman — "I had to. The sound was 
too loud." 

Why is a caller like a lover? 

First he comes to a door (adore), gives 
the bell (belle) a ring, gives the maid 
his name, and thus is taken in 

Charlie Meyers— "Say, what was that 
place we just buzzed through?" 
Speg — "Cleona." 

Charlie— "Was it? Good! I always 
wanted to see Cleona." 

Coach — "Wogan, you've been a bad 
boy. Go over to the vibrator and give 
vourself a good shaking." 

Bill Barnes: "Do you guarantee this 
gun? Suppose it bursts and blows my 
bead off?" ' 

Dealer: "In that case we give you a 
new gun." 

Prof. Stokes: "What could be worse 
than a surplus of wheat?" 

Fernsler: "A surplus of spinach."

your finger on my wrist watch."

and the other horizontally!" 

Theatrical Agent: "Good news; I've

six weeks' tour." 

"Too late, I've eaten the act." 

Sammy: "I know an aviator who a ^

We expect to see you all down at 
Reading mis Saturday to watch an L. V. 
victory over those old pals of ours, the 
Albright Lions. When we say everybody 
we mean everybody from Alumni to 
Frosh, not to say anything of that home 
to wn sweetheart. Anyway, we expect to 
see every loyal L. V. C. rooter and don't 
forget to get a place in the official L. V. 
C. cheering section. 

The L. V. C. band will be there in all 
its splendor. It will have plenty of com- 
petition from the Albright band as well 
aS the Reading High band which has 
been hired for the occasion. Let's get 
roing, band, and show them the snap- 
piest college band in the country. Ray 
for the band! 

Now to pet back to the team. "Scoop" 
Feeser, the Lebanon flash, will be back 
in the game again on Saturday for the 
first time since the St. Joe game. 
"Scoop's" bad back is coming along fine 
and should be "in the pink" for Satur- 
day's game. Lesher and Light, both out 
with injured shoulders, will be lost to the 
team for the rest of the season but 
Sprenkle will probably get the call on 
Saturday as his wrenched knee will prob- 
ably be in shape by that time. 

The loss of Lesher and Light is a de- 
cided check to a Lebanon Valley vic;ory. 
Lesher, a frosh, was improving all along 
and starred in the Springfield and in the 
Mt. St. Mary's game until he was injured 
in the second quarter. Light will be 
missed on Saturday for his line plung- 
ing and also on the receiving end of 
Charley Rust's passes. 

We hear that' the Albright attack will 
be mostly in the air on Saturday, so let's 
rush that passer and knock down those 
passes, team. If this can be done, we 
are sure that the Lion won't roar on 
Saturday as it did last year, so let's go, 
team. Here's to those L. V. C. touch-

Rust who ran the ball back to his own 
25 yard line. L. V. punted to St. Mary's, 
the ball rolling to the 7 yard line. St. 
Mary's immediately punted to Rust on 
the St. Mary's 48 yard line. L. V. made 
9 yards on a pass, Rust to Williams,. 
Stone made a first down off tackle on the 
next play, placing the ball on the Moun- 
taineers' 30 yard line. On the next play 
Rust slipped around left end for 30 yards 
and a touchdown. Stone place-kicked 
the extra point. The period ended with 
the ball St. Mary's on her own 30 yard 
line after another exchanga of punts be- 
tween Rust and Lynch. 

Third Period 
Boran received for L. V. on her own 
30. Rust made 5 at left tackle. Boran 
was stopped for no gain. Rust punted to 
St. Mary's 40. St. Mary's came right 
back with a punt to Rust on his own 30. 
He ran it back 10 to the 40. An ex- 
change of seven more punts were made 
in this period between Lynch of the 

I Mountaineers and Rust of L. V. Neither 
| team was able to penetrate nearer than 
its opponents' 25 yard line. The period 
ended with the ball L. V. C.'s on her 
own 45 yard line. 

Fourth Period 
Rust punted to the St. Mary's 30. Cul- 
len slugged an L. V. player and the 
Mountaineers were backed up to their 
own 15. Another penalty for holding 
placed the ball on the 1 yard line. Mc- 
Cormack instead of punting tried to run 
the ball from behind his own goal line. 
He was downed for a safety and 2 points. 
From here on the game became another 
punting duel and ended with the ball in 
L. V. C.'s possession on the 18 yard line. 
Mount St. Mary's tried 7 passes in this 
qi arter, one being successful for a gain 
of 7 yards.

On Tuesday morning some freshman 
boy asked Miss Moyer to lend him a 
pencil. Miss Moyer opened the desk 
drawer but quickly and cautiously closed 
it and asked the boy to come, himself, 
to get the pencil. The class, by this 
time, was in an uproar but Miss Moyer 
kept a straight face and didn't- scream! 
The freshman came up and hu.nbly re- 
moved the cause of all the disturbance, 
an innocent little brown mouse. Three 
cheers for Miss Moyer! 


Four Varsity men will be seeing 
their last day of action against Al- 
bright on Saturday: Lee Stone and 
George Wood of Trenton, N. J.; 
Captain Albert Kazlusky of Miners- 
ville; William Wogan of York. Stone 
started in the game as a tackle but 
has found his real speed in the back- 
field. Fleet of foot and sure of toe, 
his playing will be sorely missed. 
George Wood has been unusually 
valuable this year as a relief quarter- 
back. He has displayed real general- 
ship each time. "Willie" Wogan has 
been passing the ball to the backfield 
for four consecutive years. It will be 
hard to replace the admirable pass- 
ing and the strong defensive playing 
of "Red." Captain Murphy's going 
will mean the loss of one of the most 
aggressive players L. V. C. has ever 
seen. Next year's eleven will certain- 
ly miss the hard tackling and fine of- 
fensive work of Captain Murphy. 
We'll be there and rooting for the 
boys to win and keep a pleasant mem- 
ory of their last game for the Blue 
and White. 


(Continued from Page One) 

The second feature on the program 
was presented by Charles Kiaybill. It 
consisted of a group of war poems com- 
posed by Siegfried Sassoon, a noted war 
poet. Three of them were read, includ- 
ing "Counter Attack," "Trench Duty" 
and "To Any Dead Officer." 

The third speaker on the program was 
Philip Underwood, whose topic was "Are 
We Progressing Towards World Peace?" 
He discussed the various difficulties in 
the path of world peace and then pro- 
ceeded to point out possible methods of 
bringing it to reality. 

George Hiltner spoke on *-h. fourth 
subject, "Danger Signals of War." He 
further emphasized the ever present dan- 
ger of war because of the rricmy prac- 
tices and teachings being spread through- 
out our country. He especially con- 
demned any events, such as Fourth of 
July celebrations, which show the glor- 
ies of war. 

Following the critic's report by Harry 
Zech the meeting was thrown open to 
general questions. A very lively discus- 
sion on the evening's subject was the 
result and it kept everyone immensely 
interested until time for adjournment. 



(Continued from Page One) 
A very able message was brought to 
the organization by Dr. Butterwick, pro- 
fessor of Bible and Philosophy on the 
college faculty. Although most of the 
people in the meeting are in constant 
contact with Dr. Butterwick through his 
college classes, his words were none the 
less appreciated by everyone. His sub- 
ject was "Essential Qualifications for 
Successful Life Work Recruits." He list- 
ed three qualifications: first, faith in 
God; second, faith in yourself; and 
third, a willingness to do the work that 
comes to a Life Work Recruit. His ad- 
dress was made real and practical by 
well-selected personal touches and by ex- 
cerpts from the life stories of several 
missionaries who succeeded as Life Work 

After the last hymn was sung, Dr. 
Butterwick offered prayer and dismissed 
the group with the benediction.

Chapel Recital To 
Be Given Each Week 


The Band, Roth, Bailey, Saun- 
ders, Wampler and Todd 
Have Appeared 

Some time ago, the college adminis- 
tration asked the conservatory to take 
over one chapel period a week in which 
to present a suitable program to the stu- 
dent body. Mr. Rutledge was given en- 
tire charge of the planning and arrang- 
ing of these programs, and to him goes 
the credit for the delightful treats we 
are enjoying every Friday morning dur- 
ing chapel period. 

At first the band alone was featured, 
but requests for the other departments 
of the conservatory to appear, caused 
a change in the original plans. It was 
decided to present all the organizations, 
from time to time throughout the year, 
and to conduct songs and similar pro- 
grams to include the entire student body. 
This plan will show the accomplishments 
of our different clubs and organizations, 
including the band, the orchestra, the 
mixed chorus, the several instrumental 
classes, individual artists and iht student 
body as a whole. 

Up to this time the band has g.ven us 
several short concerts during this period; 
the Choral Club has presented a few 
numbers; the cheer-leaders, Jack Todd 
and Wampler, have conducted seme live- 
ly pep meetings; Dale Ro«-h has enter- 
tained us with his vocal special'.fes; Ruth 
Bailey has very capably represented the 
piano department; Leslie Saunders has 
shown us how a real player can handle a 
trombone, and Mr. Rutledge has led the 
school in some snappy songs. 

The fact that these efforts are appre- 
ciated by the students is shown by the 
fine attendance of Fr ; day chapel periods. 

flat, uninteresting figure, but a living per- 
sonality who was moved by the same 
thohghts and emotions as we are. After 
his recital of Schiller's college life, every 
one felt that they had known him and 
that he was a real human being who 
liked to cut classes, and do all the other 
things an average college «rudenr does. 

Mr. Harry Zech read several poems 
by Schiller. He chose those which best 
represent Schiller's poetic ability. He 
read especially well "Der Hanselich," a 
tale of a lady's glove, and "Hotfnung." 
Every one appreciated Mr. Zech's at- 
tention to rhyme and recite, which 
brought out the beauty of Schiller's po- 
etry in his smooth flowing lines. 

The program could not close without 
a bit of humor. Miss Evelyn Fields 
greatly amused the club by reading sev- 
eral ancedotes and short stories. "1st 
der Elephant Klug?" "Ansgegangen" 
und "Ein boser gewitter" got the best re- 
ception. To use an old expression — you 
have to hear them in German to appre- 
ciate them. 

At the conclusion of the formal pro- 
gram, the members gathered around the 
piano to sing old German folk songs 
and modern classics such as "Auf We- 
dersehn," "Im Alten Wien," "Sagmir 
Darling," etc. The meeting was then ad- 
journed. The remainder of the evening 
was spent in listening to the election re-

tive of the class of Germans who lived 
through the World War and the defeat 
of German militarism and saw her poli- 
tical, social, and financial disorders, 
since the overthrow of the monarchy. 
Hauptmann, himself was a firm believer 
in the military ideal of Germany, and, 
as a result, had to reconstruct his opin- 
ions and beliefs after the war. He is 
keenly interested in all the alfairs of this 
new Germany. His best literary works 
however belong to the period before the 

A charming piano solo, "Russian 
Song," was presented by Miss Mary 
Kaufman. Her fine toned and delicate 
phrasing brought out the plaintive beau- 
ty of the simple melody. 

Miss Louise Gillan then reviewed the 
play "Der Versunhene Glocke" by Ger- 
hart Hauptmann. This play is one of 
Hauptmann's best works. The plot con- 
cerns the ambition of a bell maker, who 
spent his life constructing a bell, which 
would be a triumph of his art, and a 
monument for the ages. But at its com- 
pletion the bell falls into the sea, and 
so is lost. Its maker dies broken-hearted, 
realizing his was an empty ambition. It 
is a fanciful story of fairies and simple 
village folk. Miss Gillan quite cleverly 
built up the atmosphere and developed 
the characters in such a way that she 
did not spoil the beauty of the story 
which is so utterly impossible 

Miss Helen Eddy and Mr. Harry To- 
bias sang a charming duet, "Sing mir 
dein Lied" (Sing Me to Sleep). This is 
the first time the German Club has been 
able to nersuade "Toby" to sing. Every- 
one is looking forward to having him 
again. Perhapt, the next time he will 
sing without the moral support of a 
mere woman. 

Mr. Leonard Schrope sketched the life 
of Schiller. Schrope possesses the happy 
faculty of being able to talk about the 
man under discussion, as an immediate 
contemporary. His Schiller was not a

ments, like clocks, go from the motion 
men give them. Governments are run 
by men, not men by governments. 

It is rather tragic to step from Penn's 
terms of peace to the German ideas of 
war in the beginning of the twentieth 
century. Back of the war was a philoso- 
phy of the exultation of the German peo- 
ple. Out of this arose the disregard of 
treaties, which they held were expressions 
of voluntary suppression, no more im- 
portant than scraps of paper. 

The last war taught us many things. 
It taught us the spirit of sacrifice, but 
showed us that with sacrifice comes 
greed. Nations in time of war are or- 
ganized liars. We don't get news, we get 
propaganda. We are here not to praise 
war, but to CONDEMN war, and all the 
avarice, greed, lying and pride that goes 
with it. 

In illustrating the spirit of Washing- 
ton, Dr. Shenk read the poem about him 
written by the octogenarian poet, Edwin 
Markham, and added that four volumes 
could not express the character of that 
great man, George Washington, as this 
poem. The address was brought to a 
fitting conclusion with the reading of 
William Penn's prayer for Philadelphia. 

Oily to bed and oily to rise 
Is the fate of us grease and gasoline 

While crossing the common recently 
an old lady noticed one of those men 
who go about jabbing a pointed stick 
into scraps of paper to gather them up 
Stopping beside him she said, kindly, 
"Don't you find that work very tiring?" 

"Not so very, mum," he replied. "You 
see, I was born to it — my father used to 
harpoon whales."

Concerning Hair Worn 
On A Man's Upper Lip 

President Woodrow Dellinger's Wick- 
erscram Commission for the Investiga- 
tion of Underclass Moustaches and 
Other Dire Facts has finally organized 
its report. Chairman Ephraim Wicker- 
scram would make no personal statement 
for the press this morning. The gist of 
the 100,000 word folio follows: 

The first moustache for consideration 
was that of Theodore Reese of Stoyles- 
town. The young gentleman was found 
to have his upper lip in a deplorable 
condition of semi-hairiness. The mem- 
bers of the commission could find no 
logical reason for he mistplaced eyebrow. 
They resorted to exerting official press- 
ure to get a confession from Mr. Reese, 
but the young gentleman, rather than 
divulge his horrible secret, with one slash 
of his mighty razor (we refuse to name 
the make of razor unless advertising fees 
are paid) hewed the sparse outcropping 
to reveal a really good looking area of 
lip underneath. 

The second victim of the commission 
was one freshman, Ross Saunders, of 
Harrisburg who is the proud possessor 
of one of the most distinctive Oliver 
Hardy type mustachios on our fair 
campus. After some amount of ques- 
tioning by the persistent chairman, Mr. 
Saunders made a modest confession: He 
is a rigid adherer to the slogan "Keep a 
stiff upper." Shaving, he has been told 
by the old maestros, softens the lip — and 
God pity the trombone player with a soft 
upper lip. 

The Honorable Leon Levitz of Leba- 
non (Professor Struble please notice the 
alliteration naturally attained here) was 
found to be struggling valiantly to raise 
a crop of bristles with the aid of Bay 
Rum and several other hair inducers. As 
yet it is scarcely as abundant as the hair 
on a cue ball but Mr. Levitz is an in- 
curable optimist. The young gallant was 
by no means bashful about revealing the 
purpose of this new addition to his fa- 
cial contours. He says it will be a valu- 
able addition to his dignity (the same 
proverbial dignity we have heard so 
much about) . 

The remaining freshman advocates of 
the hair-growths gave one single reason 
— "My girl likes it." Before leaving the 
freshman section, Mr. Wickerscram 
seized this opportunity to flatly prohibit 
the fostering of mustachios by Lester 
Hautz, Vernon Hemperley, and Theo- 
dore Cassell. 

Stepping into the Sophomore territory 
the Wickerscram commission reports a 
special abundance of prospective handle- 
bars in the ministerial division Mr. Bar- 
ney Mentzer (commonly known as the 
erstwhile pride of Walley Wiew) begged 
immunity to any form of tax on his 
brush — using Mr. Saunder's stiff upper

lip theory with the substitution of a base 
horn for a trombone. But the truth will 
out and after several hours of gruelling 
Mr. Mentzer broke right down and con- 
fessed — he wants to look like Warner 
Baxter because his girl friend is just 
cr-r-razy about Warner. Charles Daugh- 
erty gave one of the most heart-rending 
alibis to the investigators. It seems that 
several weeks ago Mr. Daugherty was on 
a street corner in Philadelphia waiting 
for a certain fair university co-ed, when 
an old lady approached him. "Little 
boy," she said, "are you lost?" "Why 
no," answered Cliarles. "Now! Now!" 
continued the kind old soul, "Don't cry 
anymore. Here's a lolly-pop for you." 
Poor Mr. Daugherty! The fair co-ed 
(she witnessed the last part of the melo- 
drama) is still laughing at him. Thus it 
is that this young gentleman too has 
fallen into the clutches of that terrible 
mental disease — Fullerbrushitis. Round- 
ing out the report, the commission gives 
two factors vital to the correction of 
these deplorable conditions threatening 
our social structure: "Primarily the vic- 
tims of this plague should be placed in 
a room of mirrors for their own enlight- 
enment. Secondly, if everyone who wan; 
to laugh at these noble moustachio ex- 
periments would do so openly, a correc- 
tion would be insured." To illustrate 
this last point Mr. Wickerscram cites the 
case of one Albert Sincavage of Miners- 
ville. Poor Albert had fallen victim to 
the disease during the summer months. 
Walking along Minersville's Main Street 
one day, he came face to face with one 
Peter Kandrat (especially noted for hav- 
ing a laugh of great volume). Mr. Kan- 
drat laughed loud and long into Mr. 
Sincavage's face — an lo and behold. The 
moustache had blown right off of Al- 
bert's lip and the curse of the disease 
had been overcome forever. 

Dellinger — "Did you like the ci-ar I 
gave you? For 500 coupons of tha- 
brand you get a banjo." 

Werner — "If I smoked 500 of thosr 
cigars I'd want a harp."

(Continued from Page One) 
Allan Ranck presided at the meeting 
and also brought the message. His sub- 
ject was "The Place and the Purpose of 
the Y. M. C. A." He gave the history 
of the origin of the organization and 
then traced its progress from the time of 
its founding soon after 1850 by George 
Williams. Its purpose as stated by WiJ. 
liams was "to bind our little company 
together in order that we might the bet- 
ter lead our comrades to Christ, and in 
order that we might share with one an- 
other our personal experience of Christ 
"The successful 'Y' must be alive with 
the spirit and purpose of Christ as was 
George Williams. We find our greatest 
possibilities for expression of personali- 
ties in the realm of spiritual activities. 
That is the power and stronghold of the 
Y. M. C. A. At the conclusi on of hk 
talk, Mr. Ranck challenged the group 
saying, "The 'Y' is not a place only f or 
young ministers, nor is it merely a so- 
ciety or a fraternity. It is the place 
where we as young men, looking for 
truth, right, justice and realization of 
ideals can find all these through discus- 
sion, sharing, and leadership. 

The Y. M. C. A. is planning to offer 
the men of the campus many more pro- 
grams such as these and is further plan- 
ning some other interesting and helpful 
activities. The subject for discussion for 
the coming Sunday evening is "Can In- 
dividual Honor Mean Anything on the 
Campus?" This promises to be a livel* 
topic, and a record attendance is looked 
fo -ward to by the cabinet.

Clio Presents First 
Formal Anniversary 
Dance in Lebanon 



Burd Le June and Leviathan 
Orchestra Furnish Music 
For Merry Couples 

On Saturday evening, November 19, 
Clio held its Initial Anniversary Dance 
at the Colonial Ballroom in Lebanon. 
This was the first time that the society 
has attempted to hold a formal dance 
on its anniversary date. It was but an- 
other of the innovations that the club 
has undertaken in order to modernize 
campus social life and to make the so- 
ciety conform to its high ideals as a so- 
cial factor in campus affairs. In order 
to do this, several members of the so- 
ciety have inaugurated a program of 
teas, dances, plays and literary pro- 
grams. So far they have had a tea, a 
literary program and on Saturday night 
was their first formal dance. 

To the strains of Burd Le June's fa- 
mous Leviathan orchestra, the members 
and their guests arrived at the ballroom 
beautifully decorated with Clionian ban- 
ners and yellow and white chrysanthe- 
mums. As the guests ^ntered, they were 
received by Miss Kathryn Lutz, anni 
versary president; Miss Miriam Owen, 
opening president, and Mrs. Mary C. 
Green. Miss Helen E. Myers, Mrs. O. 
E. Reynolds and Mrs. P. A. W. Wallace 
acted as sponsors for the affair. 

Due to the fact that Jan Campbell 
and his Washington and Lee Band were 
due to open at the Riverside Club in 
New York City, and were unable to be 
here, they secured for us Burd Le June 
and his orchestra who recently played a

Dr. Bigler Talks On 
China In Chapel 


Paul Emenheiser Talks 
On Individual Honor 
At Sunday Vespers 

The regular weekly discussion of the 
Y. M. C. A. was held in the "Y" Room 
Sunday evening at 5:45 P. M. This was 
the second of a series of discussions on 
selected topics prepared by Paul D. Em- 
enheiser, the devotional chairman of the 
Y. M. C. A. 

The devotions for the evening were 
in charge of Robert Cassel who used an 
excerpt from Fosdick's "Manhood of 
the Master" and also commented on the 
honorable qualities of the American In- 
dians as given by Seton in his book on 
"Woodcraft." These comments led very 
fittingly into the discussion which had 
for its subject "Can Individual Honor 
Mean Anything on the Campus?" Paul 
D. Emenheiser led with a talk on the 
subject. It was pointed out that there 
are four places to develop honor: the 
classroom, the individual's personal life, 
the social contacts, and the spiritual life. 
The speaker intimated the future wel- 
fare of civilization depends upon the in- 
dividual's honor. The curse of con- 
formity is one of the obstacles placed in 
the way of this ideal state within the 
individual. The listeners were chal- 
lenged with Emerson's words: "Be it 
how it will, do right now." A circle of 
Prayer was closed by Allan Ranck and 
the group adjourned. 

Dr. Bigler Discourses On Religion, 
Education and Military 

Strength of China 

Thursday morning, November 17, Dr. 
Jones of the college church introduced 
to the student body Dr. Regina Bigler, 
who has served for forty years as a 
medical missionary in Canton, China. 
She has returned only at the request of 
the Mission Board. Duryig the recent 
disturbances in China, she refused to 
leave her post and cabled the authori- 
ties here that she wished no claim to be 
made for her life. 

Dr. Bigler did not speak concerning 
herself, but she spoke of China. No re- 
ligion may be taught in the schools. 
All that is done must be done so in- 
directly. The students themselves seek 
the religious guidance. The principals 
of the schools must be natives, so the 
missionaries select and then train tnose 
fitted for the post. The schools of today 
are much like the American schools. 
Memorization is no longer the basis of 
all study. The old-fashioned examina- 
tion stalls have been discarded. Some- 
times the students declare a holiday and 
go about the countryside teaching. 

China is always thought of as an un- 
conquerable country. The recent in- 
vasion of Japan has not changed the 
Chinaman's opinion of himself. How- 
ever, compulsory military training has 
come as a direct result of this struggle 
All men and boys must serve a period 
of military service. This is in opposi- 
tion to the belief of the Chinese, for they 
feel it is better to die than to fight, but 
they feel it is now necessary to fight. 

Dr. Bigler is convinced of the strength 
of China. She feels that as a country 
it has a great future. Whatever China 
becomes, she will surely owe a great deal 
of her progress to the influence of Dr.

A "La Vie" reporter interviewed 
Doctors Wallace and Struble as to 
their views on the awarding of the 
Nobel Prize to John Galsworthy. 
Their two statements were as followj: 

Dr. Wallace: "John Galsworthy 
— a reflector of our times — is certain- 
ly deserving of the honor." 

Dr. Struble: "Galsworthy is per- 
haps the most considerable from the 
point of variety of output and per- 
fection of style." 

Braving pneumonia and risking broken bones, "Hooks" Mylin and his stal- 
wart football athletes went to the Albright Stadium last Saturday and fought their 
annual gridiron battle before several thousand fans who were equally as brave for 
putting in their appearance. The Red and White aggregation came out on top 
with a 6 to win. It was the twenty-third meeting between the two ancient rivals. 

Drenched by a downpour of rain that ceased shortly before the game had 
started, the field resembled a. mud hole. Treacherous footing, a water-logged ball 
uniforms that were soaked with water and heavy with mud were only a few of 
the adverse conditions under which the gallant warriors of both teams fought 

*to a bitter end. 

Both teams were bent upon winning 
this important fray which was fought 
just like any other Lebanon Valley- Al- 
bright battle. Due to the conditions of 
the field, it seemed that an inevitable 
"break" would do the trick. Perhaps it 
was old lady luck and maybe it was 
alertness. But whatever it was, Albright 
had it. 

Delta Lambda Sigma 
Holds Party in Hall 


Dance to Music From Radio; 
Refreshments Feature Plea- 
sant Evening 

On Saturday night I was walking up 
Main street of Annville and as I passed 
Delphian Hall, the strains of music 
penetrated my ear. I immediately 
rushed up the steps and stood there 
"peeping" in the window. The lights 
were dim and couples were dancing to 
the music of "Guy Lombardo and his 
Royal Canadians" (by radio of course) 
which I had heard. 

I hadn't been standing there very 
long when someone spied me and came 
running out. It was a beautiful brown- 
eyed girl, she said to me, "Come on in, 
this is Delphian's Date night." 

I went in and was introduced to all 
the Delphian girls and their friends. It 
was all so informal that I felt quite at 
home. I had . quite a few dances and 
then I was asked if I didn't want to go 
over to South Hall parlor and see what 
they were doing there, and so of course 
I did. 

When I opened the door I heard some 
of the boys and girls singing "The 
Farmer in the Dell" and of course I 
stood there and watched them. Then 
someone suggested that we play "Heavy, 
Heavy What Hangs Over." Gee, it was 
so much fun, it reminded me of some 
of the parties I used to go to in High 

Then we went in the parlor and there 
were about five bridge games in process 
but there was one vacant table so we 
sat down and began to play bridge too. 

Before long I heard someone yell, 
"Did you say we eat?" Yes we did, we 
were served with sandwiches, candy, 
peanuts and punch. 

While we were eating, the chaperons, 
Miss Wood, Miss Miller and Professor 
Stokes walked up to our table and I 
was introduced to them. 

(Continued on Page 4, Column 2) 

Fought to a standstill by the Mylin- 
coached outfit, Albright was forced to 
resort to a forward pass to score the 
only touchdown of the game. The lone 
touchdown of the fray was scored in 
the third quarter. With the ball on Leb- 
anon Valley's 31 yard line following an 
exchange of kicks, Larry Hatton, former 
Perkiomen Prep athlete and ace of the 
Lion backfield, stepped back from the

150 Students at Mt. 
Holyoke " Sacrifice' ■ 
Rations to Aid Poor 

South Hadley, Mass. (Special) — One 
hundred and fifty students of Mount 
Holyoke college voluntarily went on 
sacrificial rations one day this week that 
they might raise their annual Golden 
Rule Fund which has become a Holyoke 
tradition. Instead of the chicken, ice 
cream and customary dainties of the 
Sunday noon meal they had their choice 
of two frugal menus; either Boston 
baked beans, brown bread and butter; 
or lamb stew and baking powder bis- 
cuits. The savings in the cost of the 
meal served, as compared with the more 
elaborate one generally eaten, will 
amount to several hundred dollars. This 
fund is annually sent to the Golden Rule 
Foundation, the international headquar- 
ters of which are in New York, the 
foundation dispensing it according to 
the most pressing needs of the year. 

For six years Golden Rule Sunday 
gifts went to the support of the Near 
East orphans. For the past two years 
the work has become broader in scope, 
suffering and undernourished children 
in all parts of the world benefiting. Last 
year's fund went to 26 countries, being 
administered by 89 investigated and ap- 
proved relief agencies.

WEDNESDAY, NOV. 23, 1932 


In some circles the idea is current 
that Lebanon Valley has an inferiority 
complex. Perhaps it is true. Perhaps it 
is so much bunk. Nevertheless it irri- 
tated us to the point that we will devote 
a column to refuting this apparently 
asinine suggestion. Granted that we, in 
the presence of collegians from other 
colleges, are treated condescendingly, 
which only causes us to smile, there is 
no reason why we should foster that 

Scholastically, the suggestion is abso- 
lutely putrid. In the field of small col- 
leges we have a faculty and equipment 
that equals, if not surpasses, that of any 
other small college. It may be that the 
"small college" idea may rankle. Then 
allow us to say that the small college has 
advantages which a big mass-production 
institution does not have. Personal con- 
tact is one. For more reasons we would 
suggest a little reading on this subject 
in the library. Small colleges have dis- 
advantages too, but why Lebanon Valley 
should have more than any other small 
college is beyond our feeble comprehen- 
sion. If anyone is willing to say that 
the courses here are easier than else- 
where, let him be heard and we will 
gladly bestow upon him three or four 
Croix de Guerre and an engraved invi- 
tation to Aristotle's tea party. Brain 
should never, never go unrewarded. 

Athletically the suggestion too is ab- 
surd. This year our football team bowed 
to four teams, three of which are insti- 
tutions considerably larger than our own. 
Perhaps we should not play those 
schools. Next year we will not. But 
then kindly observe that the schools we 
defeated were in our own class, and 
that we defeated four of them. This 
has been a good year in football, even 
though we were set back in that ocean 
of ooze in Reading last Saturday. Talk- 
ing of athletics, consider the band. 
Kindly name any school, of our size, 
that has a band even comparable to 
ours. Incidentally, where was our rival's 
band last Saturday? 

We can't say how the basketball team 
will fare this year, but if last season was 
any indication of what will happen this 
year we will have plenty to cackle about. 
Kindly page through the 1933 Quitta- 
pahilla to the basketball section. Note 
carefully the final standing of the teams. 
We finished second. Gettysburg had the 

good fortune to finish ahead of us. True, 
Franklin and Marshall also came in sec- 
ond, but their claim to this position is 
invalidated by the virtue of the fact that 
we defeated them every time we met. 
Note carefully also, the schools that fin- 
ished below us. Does this suggest in- 
feriority? It may be that we do not have 
an adequate gymnasium of our own, and 
a football stadium. Another interroga- 
tion. Was Rome built in a day? 

Socially, the idea finally becomes 
laughable. No doubt years ago we may 
have had an abundance of green prod- 
ucts for whom hazing was both fitting 
and proper. But all schools have had 
those. Now that time is past. We have 
emerged socially as any other institution 
Note carefully the society anniversaries 
and the activities of the various classes. 
And we will continue this metamorpho- 
sis. We may not have fraternities, but 
if our eyes and ears have not deceived 
us they will soon be on our campus. 
The trend is this direction is strong. 

In regards to the culture acquired 
outside of the classroom, the thought of 
inferiority cannot even exist. It will be 
noticed that we have excellent musical 
recitals; excellent outside speakers; that 
our almost too numerous clubs are still 
a vital force on the campus; that our 
attendance at plays presented in Harris- 
burg and recitals in Reading is far above 
reproach; and that the desire to appre- 
ciate IS manifested in a hundred and 
one different ways, of which those five 
plays on the campus by the students are 
but one. 

Thus we see that in the final analysis 
the idea is reduced to a non-entity. It 
does not exist. We have no reason to 
have any complex, inferior or other- 
wise. Curious though, that we should 
be accused of having the inferior vari- 
ety. Should some be guilty — to them we 
say: "To thee, dear Alma Mater. . . ."

Probably only one outstanding Church 
of the United States has a minister 
whom it has raised from the ranks of its 
laity. That Church is the Madison Ave- 
nue Church in New York City and Doc- 
tor Ralph W. Sockman is its pastor. 
The Conference is especially fortunate 
in securing him as the opening speaker. 

Doctor Sockman came to New York 
in 1911 directly from college to be sec- 
retary to the Inter-Collegiate Y. M. C. 
A. and to do graduate work at Columbia 
University. Within six years he was 
graduated from Columbia University, 
completed his work at the Theological 
Seminary and had been elected to the 
most influential Methodist pulpit in New 
York, the position which he now holds. 

As a preacher, Doctor Sockman is 
quoted from coast to coast. His pulpit 
utterances on public issues and his radio 
addresses have furnished the theme for 
editorials in many of our great secular 
newspapers. Few, if any, pulpits have 
been widely watched in this regard. A 
recent critic, writing a series of articles 
on the "American Pulpit" in an Inter- 
denominational Religious Journal begim 
his appraisal thus: "America has no 
greater preacher than Ralph Sockman." 

In no sphere does Doctor Sockman 
have a stronger interest and appeal than 
among students and educators. He has 
been college preacher at Yale, Cor- 
nell, Columbia, University of Chicago, 
Dartsmouth. He is a member of the Phi 
Delta Beta Fraternity, author of "Men 
of the Mystery; The Revival of the Con- 
ventional Life of the Church in Eng- 
land; Superbs of Christianity." 

The theme of the Conference will be 
"The Power of Fellowship. " An un- 
usually strong group of leaders has been 
secured for the Conference, in addition 
to Doctor Sockman. Reverend John 
Hart, populary known as Jack Hart, of 
the University of Pennsylvania, a four- 
letter man, will have charge of the Con- 
ference devotions. The Conference ban- 
quet on Saturday evening will be ad- 
dressed by Doctor Clyde A. Lynch, new- 

ly elected president of Lebanon Valley 

On Saturday morning a series of dis- 
cussions on Fellowship have been ar- 
ranged. A group on Fraternity Fellow- 
ship will be led by Doctor H. M. J. 
Klein of F. 8C M. College. Another 
group on Obstacles to Fellowship will 
be led by Doctor M. E. Ritzman of the 
Albright Theological Seminary; an- 
other group will deal with the Team and 
Spiritual Values under the leadership of 
Coach John Pucillo and Jack Hart of 
the University of Pennsylvania, whib 
the fourth group on Spiritual Fellow- 
ship will be in charge of President Karl 
T. Waugh, president of Dickinson Col- 

The Annual Student Faculty Confer- 
ence is attended by delegates from the 
colleges of Central Pennsylvania. Be- 
cause of the unique opportunities that 
the State Capitol offers, it is expected 
that the Conference this year will be very 
largely attended. The main sessions of 
the Conference will be held at the Zion 
Lutheran Church, while the conference 
banquet will be held at the Governor

The defeat at the hands of Albright 
brought the season to a close for Leba- 
non Valley. Four victories and as many 
defeats constitute the results of the 1932 
schedule. Penn State, Fordham, and 
Springfield were above our class, while 
Albright scored their six-pointer on what 
might be called a fluke. In the other 
four games the Blue and White scored 
53 points to their opponents' none. 

The field was worse than a field of 
mud on Saturday, for in some places it 
was all water and no mud. The referee 
had a hard job keeping on his feet and 
following the plays. Early in the game | 
a spill made him look like the leading 
man in "The Chocolate Soldier." In j 
the first quarter he succeeded in break- j 
ing up a lateral pass play around our j 
end and then culminated his efforts by 
giving the ball to Albright. 

Both lines worked hard and the back- 
fields had a difficult time gathering 
ground. The footing was too tricky for 
our fast moving backs and they were 
usually hit before getting a real Starr. 

The four seniors playing their last 
game for Lebanon Valley certainly 
staged a grand finale. Kazlusky made 
what was probably the hardest tackle of 
the game. Wogan was in there scrap- 
ping from start to finish. Stone plunged 
through that line like a veteran should. 
Wood's valiant heaves in the closing 
minutes gave the crowd a real thrill. 

Lesher and Light were the only two 
men out with injuries. Otherwise the 
squad was quite intact. Substitutions 
were frequent and every one of the play- 
ers got his share of the game. 

After the game Coach White admitted 
that the successful pass was not intended 
for the actual receiver. But as luck 
would have it Fromm came up from no- 
where, snared the pass, and floundered 
over the goal line for the margin of 

Defeat was a rather bitter cup for the 
Blue and White. But we have something 
to look forward to in the basketball sea- 
son. You remember that last year we 
swept six games from their schedule and 
into our caps. Let's make it another huge 
feast at their expense this year. 



(Continued from Page One) 
31 yard line and threw a pas» over cen- 
ter to Johnny Fromm who snared the 
slippery ball on the 20 yard mark and 
cantered away for a touchdown. 

As Johnny scampered away, Charley 
Rust, who played safety position of L. 
V. C., made a futile attempt to sink 
Fromm near the goal line. "Bailey" 
Gass, left tackle for Albright, tried for 
the extra point by a placement kick, but 
the heavy ball failed to find its way over 
the uprights. 

Lebanon Valley did their best work in 
the first period. Shortly after the game 
started Volkin blocked an Albright kick 
15 fathoms away from the L. V. C. 
touchdown lake. On the second play 
L. V. tried a short lateral with Boran 
tossing to Rust. After the ball Lad hit 
the referee, Rust could not hold on to 
the slippery oval and Jake Orr recov- 
ered for Albright. Another time one of 
Rust's punts fell in a pudd.e one yard 
from the goal line but Hatton booted 
't out of danger. 

Most of the first period was played in 
Albright territory with the ball exchang- 
'ng hands frequently, due to fumbling. 
Hatton and Rust kicked well consider- 
lr ig the unsafe footing ana the water- 
laden ball. 

In the second period "Radio" De 
Franco, Hatton's running mate in the 
°ackficld, fumbled a lateral pass heaved 
by Hatton on L. V. C.'s 20 yard line. 
Hatton had just started the drive with 
a first down on the 28 yard line. 

In the fourth period Albright was 
wending toward another possible score 
but strong Lebanon Valley defence took 
the ball away from them on downs on 
the 17 yard line when Hartor. failed to 
register a first down on ths fourth try 
for the necessary yardage. 

Albright scored eight first down: 
while Lebanon Valley failed to tegister. 
Passing was virtually impossible, s^>ve 
two that were successfully completed, 
one for Lebanon Valley and one for 

First Period 

Lebanon Valley kicked off to Hino, 
who received it on the 10-yard line. Al- 
bright tried a line play, with no gain, 
attempted a punt, which was blocked by 
Volkin, who recovered for L. V. on the 
13-yard line. Whiting made no gain 
through right tackle, and an attempted 
lateral, Rust to Feeser, struck the referee 
and was grounded. Albright recovered, 
and punted to L. V. on the 25. Rust 
then punted to Albright on the 50, in 
three plays Albright failed to make a 
first down, and punted to L. V. on the 
ten. L. V. failed to gain, and punted 
to mid-field, the remainder of the period 
was an exchange of punts between the 
two teams, neither team penetrating in- 
to the other's territory until the last 
play of the quarter, when Hatton punt- 
ed to Rust on L. V.'s 7-yard line. 

Second Period 

L. V.'s ball on the 7-yard line. Stone 
made 5 through center, Rust punted to 
Hino on the fifty, Hatton hit center for 
no gain. Albright penalized fifteen for 
unnecessary roughness. Hatton punted 
to Rust, who received on his own thirty, 
and ran back twenty yards to the fifty; 
in three plays Stone made nine yards; 
Rust punted to Albright's own 25, Hat- 
ton took the ball for first down through 
right tackle, but the ball was taken back 
and Albright was penalized for holding. 
Albright punted to Rust on his own 
forty, Rui.t fumbled and Daub recovered 
for Albright. Hino made five through 
center, and Hatton a first down on the 
twenty. DeFranco swept around right 
end for five more, fumbled the ball, and 
immediately Sprenkle recovered on the 
thirty. Rust punted out of bounds on

"Thanksgiving" Theme 
Of Friendly Hour 

"Cause for Thanksgiving" was the 
theme of Friendly hour Sunday evening, 
November 20. This year many complain 
that there is nothing to be thankful for. 
The purpose of this meeting was to find 
reasons in everyday living for giving 

Irma Kieffer led devotions. Then 
Ruth Garner spoke of the glory of 
change. Change is always present in 
nature. In the out-of-doors more beauty 
and peace is found than all the artificial 
beauty money can buy. Autumn is na- 
ture's farewell to the beauty of summer. 

Louise Bishop read Henry Van Dykes 
"Thanksgiving," after which Arlene 
Heckrote spoke about "Just Being 
Glad." We should be glad we have 
something to do, whether we like it or 
not. For life itself, we can utter thanks. 

Marion Kruger gave a reading, 
"Thanksgiving Through Thanksgiving." 
Again blessings were counted. At first 
it seemed that there was nothing to be 
considered, but soon a great list grew — 
home, friends, school itself. Then Rae 
Anna Reber and Miriam Book sang 
"Count Your Blessings." 

Louise Gillan then spoke of Thanks- 
giving Day and its purpose Although 
we no longer have a harvest of wheat 
for which we ourselves are thankful, we 
have many other things which cannot 
be bought for which to be grateful. 
Mabel Chamberlain read a short poem, 
"Let Us Thank Him," which was the 
closing thought of the hour.

A varied and an interesting program 
was the feature of the regular meeting 
of the Philok osmian Literary Society, 
held last Friday evening, Nov. 18, in 
Philo Hall. Philo has swung into its 
regular program of activities, featuring 
meetings every week and planning for 
future entertainments. Philo members 
have responded favorably to these pro- 
grams as the large attendance on Fri- 
day evening proved. 

The meeting was opened by the presi- 
dent, Chester Goodman, and then turned 
over to Miller Schmuck who conducted 
the devotions. Following this the pro- 
gram of the evening was announced and 
presented. The first number consisted 
of a group of three poems, especially 
suitable to the Thanksgiving season. 
These were read by Clyde Mentzer and 
were: "The Old Thanksgiving Days," 
by Ernest Shurtleff; "That Things Are 
No Worse, Sire," by Helen Hunt Jack- 
son; and "Harvest Hymn," by John G. 

The second number featured Richard 
Walborn at the piano. Quite capably 
he handled "A Woodland Rhapsody," 
by Geibel. Having made such a favor- 
able impression he can expect to be 
called upon soon again. 

Jack Glenn then gave a talk on "Hob- 
bies." He spoke of the various hobbies 
enjoyed by many of our late presidents, 
and also those of prominent people of 
today. In addition he discussed various 
kinds of hobbies, such as stamp-collect- 
ing, and the worth they prove to be 
later on. 

Henry Palatini concluded the pro- 
gram with a talk on "Soph Thoughts." 
He went into detail describing the Soph- 
omore view on some of the most im- 
portant traditions of the campus, not 
hesitating to condemn some of them as 
dangerous and unnecessary. 

A most interesting critic's report was 
presented by Samuel Ulrich. A period 
of general remarks followed his report 
after which the meeting was adjourned. 



Irma Kieffer — O. K. 
Frances Keiser — I had an awfully nice 

Sylvia Morris — I never had such a 
wonderful time in all my life! 

Ruth Coble — I had a wonderful time. 

Haidee Blubaugh — I thought it was 

Charlie Mummert — It was the nicest 
affair I ever attended at L. V. 

Anne Esben.hade — I thought it was 

M. Miller — It was swell. 

Mrs. Green — I am so proud of my 
Clio girls. 

Bookkeeper: "What is the boss' col- 
lege son so swelled up about?" 

Stenographer: "A life insurance doc- 
tor just examined him and found him 
O. K." 

Bookkeeper: "Well, what of it?" 
Stenographer: "It's the only examina- 
tion he ever passed." 

Kalozetean Literary Society held its 
weekly business meeting in Kalo hall 
November 18 at 8 o'clock. 

President Krumbiegel gave a short 
business talk and then the meeting was 
turned into discussion of the coming 

The Minstrel promises to be one of 
the biggest social events on the campus. 

President Krumbiegel appointed sev- 
eral committees. The nominating com- 
mittee consists of Mr. Darwin Williard 
as chairman, Mr. Todd, and Mr. Buz- 
zell. An invitation committee was also 
appointed; of this group Mr. Clements 
will act as chairman and Mr. Klitch, 
Mr. Anderson and Mr. Furlong will 

It was decided to have open house the 
Saturday after Thanksgiving. A com- 
mittee was also appointed for this. It 
consists of Mr. Hauck as chairman, as- 
sisted by Mr. Mentzer and Mr. Wm. 

Mr. Darwin Williard, coach of the 
coming Minstrel, appointed some com- 
mittees. For the program r roup was 
selected Mr. William Barnes as chair- 
man; his co-workers are Mr. Todd, Carl 
Nelson and Stuart Byers. Ticket com- 
mittee are Mr. Erghott, Mr. Heilman, 
Mr. Snyder, Mr. Donmoyer, Mr. Kaz-

Frosh Hold Annual 
Hike at Mt. Gretna 



Success of Hike Is Still Matter 
of Conjecture; Both Classes 
Claim Victory 

Thursday night, November 17, 1932 
The moon shone down in all its splen 
dor upon the wilds of Colebrook. The 
wiids were made wilder by a bunch or 
the wildest freshmen out on their annual 
hike. Over the pleasant blaze or the log 
fire which Professor Richie kept replen- 
ishing from time to time, the little fresh- 
men (girls on one side and boys on the 
other except for an occasional venture- 
some pair who coupled up) were charr- 
ing Lebanon hot-dogs. Ten long miles 
had the weary horde journeyed to make 
their little affair as private as possible. 
After all they would have been sate 
anywhere with the brawn of cute little 
freshman Paul Emenheiser on the scene 
(or was he a chaperon? ) . 

The moon was still shining. It shone 
on the road out ^f the grove. Suddenly 
the bowels of the night rang with the 
stirring tones of the Alma Mater. The 
sophomore made chorus was chorusing 
the tune in all its native splendor. How 
thrilling it all was. The jnoon smiled. 
The freshman girls tittered. The fresh- 
man boys said nasty things under their 
breaths. "How did you fellows ever find 
this place" demanded Professor Richie. 
"I knew where it was and couldn't find 
it for a long time." "Bonjour, Mon- 
sieur!" chortled Konsko. "A little oiseau 
m'a told me." "Bonjour, yourself," 
howled Charlie Myers. "Let's eat." 

So over the charring hot-dogs and 
the flaming (beg your pardon — toast- 
ing) marshmallows, the story came out. 

It was three P. M. The sun had not 
as yet given away to the moon. A bored 
sophomore was sipping coffee at the 
Pennway when his startled eyes lit upon 
two green little objects strolling non- 
chalantly up Main street. Closer observ- 
ation proved them to be none other than 
Richard Huber and Frederick Gruber 
(poetry) with their arms laden with 
packages. Sound forth the alarum. 
Hang a couple of lanterns in the church 
steeple. Make it four or five. The fresh- 
men are going. 

-It was five-forty-five P. M. The harv- 
est moon was shining and Jack Todd 
had already started to entertain the 
dorm with hi(s crooning love songs. 
Charlie Myers and Hauck, Konsko, and 
Schwartz piled into number one, Char- 
lie's car, and, led by four Freshman 
cars, proceeded to Colebrook to find the 
whereabouts of the night's entertain- 
ment. One*, ►here, the Messrs. Konsko 
and Schwartz disembarked to watch pro- 
ceedings from a handy tree as their two 
colleagues sped back for more guests. 

Thus it was that the moon shone 
down on the congenial and loving gath- 
ering of Freshmen and Sophomores in- 
stead of just Freshmen (which would 
have been entirely too selfish as Boyd 
Sponaugle says). The chorus chorused 
some more despite the wry face the 
moon made. Pretty soon even the little 
green foundlings joined in desecrating 
the spirit of silent night. Finally, lured 
by the warmth awaiting them back in 
Annville, the uninvited guests (motley 
crew says someone looking over my 
shoulder) departed — first giving a 
sportsmanlike cheer for both classes. 

The Sophomore class wishes at this 
time to thank Mr. Boyd Sponaugle and 
the various committees for the entertain- 
ment afforded. They wish also to thank 
their beloved class cousin, Mr. Paul 
Emenheiser for so graciously acting as 
a member of the welcoming committee. 
We wish also to take this opportunity to 
apologise to those girls who desired to 
accompany us back to Annville for the 
lack of transportation which made us 
sorrowfully surrender so glorious an

Then we went back to Delphian Hall 
and danced until the clock struck twelve. 
I was so sorry because I had had such 
a wonderful time, and I know that I 
learned to know at least thirty couples. 

I hope that Delphian has more of 
these affairs because I certainly know I 
will be welcome to attend them and will 
look forward to the pleasure. 

Tsk, Tsk, or More Note» 
Of a Female Columnist 

Can anyone tell me how to go about 
getting impressions of Clio Anniver- 
sary? I've even asked the couples who 
were there, but they didn't even know 
what color the punch was. That's what 
I call oblivion! 

If anybody is interested in knowing 
what to say when one bumps into a pro- 
fessor on the dance floor, ask Konsko. 
He varies his replies with "Pardon me, 
but it was my partner's fault," or "Par- 
don me, but, after all, aren't you a bit 
of a road hog?" Both remarks have 
been approved by Emily Post. 

Then again, at Clio, there was one 
couple who played half way through a 
hand of honeymoon bridge before dis- 
covering that they were using a pinochle 
deck. Oblivion again! 

We've heard that the photographer 
who took a picture of Clio anniversary 
is still in the hospital. Yes, he was hurt 
badly in the rush of couples for the 
front row. 

Dr. Stevenson's history 26 class is 
becoming more enlightened every day. 
A vital point for discussion today was 
the French newspaper. After having de- 
livered a lengthy oration on the differ- 
ences between the French and American 
newspapers, Dr. Stevenson asked Ed- 
wards, half -asleep, "Just what is the dif- 
ference, Mr. Edwards?" "The one is 
written in French, the other is written 
in English," came the unexpected reply 
And that, maintains Dr. Stevenson, is 
how the brain of a brilliant man func-

man girls! Brave little Iva Claire Weir- 
ick! She walked calmly to her doom 
with her knees shaking and her teetl 
rattling, saying, "I'm not afraid. In 
fact, I rather look forward to it!" 

On Wednesday, after 4 o'clock, we 
of the student body, when the professor- 
makes his assignment, will all confiden- 
tially rise and say "Horsefeathers" — 
seconded by the Marx brothers at the 
Astor. See you after Thanksgiving! 


Due to a typographical mistake,

The Reader's Clud traveled to Harris- 
burg November 16 to see Walter Hamp- 
den in "Cyrano De Bergerac" at the 
Majestic theatre. 

This work of Edward Rostand is con- 
sidered one of the great plays of all time 
— a modern romantic comedy with a 
contrast of tragedy, comedy, pathos, ro- 
mance, and adventure. 

Neither the huge nose nor the keen 
sword which characterizes Cyrano are 
inventions of the author, for the real 
Cyrano had a huge Roman nose and 
was the best swordsman of the cadets. 

The first act takes place in the Hotel 
de Bourgogn, Paris, where a comedian, 
Montflury, has insulted Roxane, the 
childhood sweetheart of Cyrano. This 
is followed by a duel which brings im- 
mediate praise to the cunning cadet. 

A. pastry shop is the setting for the 
second act. It is here that Roxane begs 
Cyrano to protect Christian de Neuveil- 
letti because she loves him. Cyrano, 
though broken-hearted, complies to her 
wish. In this same act, Christian, who 
has been warned not to speak of a nose 
in the presence of Cyrano, thinks an 
attack would result in some lively action. 
He is quite right until Cyrano learns the 
name of this new cadet. After all the 
other soldiers have gone forth, Cyrano 
tells Christian of Roxane's message and 
of his promise. Christian confesses his 
shyness in wooing the young woman and 
of his inability to write love letters to 
her. It is through helping Christian 
that Cyrano expresses his profound love | 
for Roxane. 

In the fourth act the cadets are on j 
the battlefield. The opening scene shows ! 
Cyrano returning from sending his daily • 
letter to Roxane. Because of these let- ( 
ters she ventures to the scene of battle 
and is present when Christian dies. Di- 
rectly upon his death, Christian begs 
Cyrano to tell Roxane that she loves the 
man who has written the letters but this 
is never accomplished. 

Cyrano is described as a "poet, duel- 
ist, philosopher, wit, soldier, lover, with 
the pride of Lucifer, the courage of a 
Crusader and the tenderness of a wom- 
an. ... a sword ready to leap from its 
scabbard in defence of honor." 

Those who were present from our 
campus were: Dr. Wallace, Walter 
Krumbiegel, Percy Clements, Clarence 
Early, Jane Muth, Miriam Book, Clyde 
Mentzer, Dorothy Jackson, Rae Anna 
Reber, Jane Shellenberger, Lavinia Cas- 
sidy, Loraine Roberts, Louise Shearer,

summer's engagement on the S. S. Levi- 
athan. They put on several novelty acts 
and some very clever entertainment. 

The dance was one of the most de- 
lightful ever held on the campus and 
many favorable comments were heard 
from all sides. Just before intermission, 
L. G. Harpel took a flashlight picture 
of the group of dancers who numbered 
about one hundred and seventy-five. As 
gifts to their escorts, Clio gave zipper 
leather wallets which were mach appre- 
ciated by the men. 

Most of the credit for the success of 
the dance must go to Miss Lutz and her 
committees who worked hard and faith- 
fully. The hall and orchestra were se- 
cured, by a committee consisting of Miss 
Margaret Early, chairman, Miriam Book 
and Kotty McAdam. Programs and fa- 
vors were secured by Miss Sophia Mor- 
ris and Marian May. The refreshments 
and decorations were in charge of Miss 
Betty Schaak and her committee who 
were Helen Eddy and Mildred Nye. 

The faculty members in attendance 
were Mrs. Mary C. Green, Miss Helen 
E. Myers, Dr. and Mrs. P. S. Wagner,

"Love Fellowman, Like Abou Ben 
Adhem, To Head List" Says 
Dr. In Bonebrake Talk 

Dr. Lynch was graduated from Leba- 
on Valley College in 1918. He re- 
ived his Ph. D. in Psychology from 
e University of Pennsylvania in 1931. 
For the past two years he has been head 
of the department of Homiletics and 
Practical Theology at Bonebrake Theo- 
logical Seminary. The new president is 
a native of Harrisburg and has spent 
most of his life in Pennsylvania and 
vicinity. He is a member of Ephrata 
Lodge, No. 665, F. and A. M, the Lan- 
caster Lodge of Perfection, the Harris- 
burg Consistory, S. P. R. S., and Rajah 
Temple, A. A. O. N. M. S. 

Back in 1914, the Reverend Clyde 
Alvin Lynch, a student at Lebanon Val- 
ley College in Annville, Pennsylvania, 
sed to take a trolley as far as Lingles- 
own every Sunday, in fair or stormy 
eather, and then trudge across the 
country to his charge at Manada Hill — 
a distance of ten long miles. He ac- 
complished his return to the school in 
the same manner. Never once, even in 
the face of a blizzard, did he miss a 
Sunday at his church. This is a typical 
example of the courage and perseverance 
of Clyde Lynch — the perseverance and 
courage which has brought him back to 
the old town as the Reverend Clyde Al- 
vin Lynch, M. A., B. D., D. D., Ph. D., 
president of Lebanon Valley College. 

Clyde Lynch was born in Harrisburg, 
Pennsylvania, August 24, 1891. His par- 
ents were John H. and Carmina B.

school at an early age to help support 
the family — promised God that his chil- 
dren should receive a college education, 
a promise which he never forgot.

Mrs. G. D. Gossard has contribut- 
ed more than a hundred books to 
the college library from the library 
of the late president, Dr. G. D. Gos- 
sard. Many of these books deal di- 
rectly with religion and religious ed- 
ucation. Several, however, deal with 
mission work in the east. Besides 
this collection are reference works on 
Education and Psychology. Then, 
too, quite a few of these volumes 
concern themselves with public speak- 
ing under the wit and humor of after 
dinner speaking in America. 


Kalo Minstrels 
Start Rehearsals 


Quartette, Dances, Solos And 
Chorus Numbers Are 

After getting an interview with Dar- 
win Williard, coach of Kalozetean Min- 
strel, to be presented January 12, he had 
the following statements to issue to the 

Kalo promises one of the biggest* 
events of the season in presenting its 
Minstrel to the campus. The latest news 
is that a twelve-piece orchestra has been 
organized. This orchestra consists of 
Loose, trumpet; Kirkpatrick, drums; 
Jagnesak, flute; Lauser, violin; Schuler, 
violin; Shrope and Saunders, trombone; 
Heath, French horn; Koch, clarinet; 
Walker, trombone; H Gruber, cornet; 
F. Gruber, trombone; Hemperly, violin; 
Huber, trumpet; Anderson, piano, and 
Bill Barnes, director. 

A quartet has also been organized. 
This consists of Ebbert, tenor; W. 
Shroyer, bass, and Stewart and John 
Goodman, tenor and baritone. Th 
quartet promises to be one of the biggest 
drawing cards in the whole program. 
Close harmony will be their specialty. 
Several members of this group will jour- 
ney to New York City where special mu- 
sical arrangements will be secured. 

Mr. Stewart Goodman will be assist- 
ant director and will help Mr. Williard 
in the coaching. Mr. Goodman has 
established his name in the musical cir- 
cles around this locality. He has done 
solo and group work in Lebanon, Ann- 
ville and nearby towns. 

Featured numbers on this program 
are now being prepared. Kalo promises 
to put forward all its effort in order to 
give a clean, snappy musical revue. 

End men and leading comedians are 
busy working on skit and dance num- 

Mr. Williard is to be congratulated 
on the sketches, skits, song numbers and 
novelty numbers that he has secured for 
the campus entertainment. 

Expensive sets are being constructed 
for the program. The setting will be a 
Southern exterior scene. 

The Minstrel will be presented in the 
Engle Conservatory at 8:00 o'clock Jan- 
uary 12, 1933. The admission will be 
thirty-five and forty-five cents. 

This year'^j annual Inter-Collegiate 
Ball is to be held at the Penn-Harris 
Hotel Ballroom Monday, December 26. 
A female member of the Lebanon Val- 
ley Student Body will be selected as a 
member of the Honorary Assisting Com- 
mittee for the ball. 

This year the affair will again be un- 
der the supervision of Raymond E. Best 
and Sidney S. Steele — former Penn State 

Miss Mary Ann Rupp '32, represent- 
ed L. V. C. at the ball last year. 


The following communication, re- 
ceived from the editor of Americana, a 
magazine of pictorial satire, should start 
ideas in the heads of our literary 

Editor of La Vie Collegienne: 

The editors of AMERICANA feel 
keenly the need of young blood in the 
hardening arteries of our great republic. 

The AMERICANA magazine offers 
$1000.00 for the best satiric contribu- 
tion, literary or artistic. 

This contest is exclusively limited to 
undergraduates of American universities 
and closes officially on March 10, 1933. 
The judges are Gilbert Seldes, Hendrik 
Willem Van Loon and George Grosz. 
Literary contributions are not to exceed 
1000 words. Non prize winning material 
of merit will be purchased at regular

Some new volumes that the library 
has recently secured are "Selected 
Essays," T. S. Eliot; "Tale of Troy," 
John Masefield; "New Poetry," Har- 
riet Monroe; and "Nicodemus," Ed- 
win Arlington Robinson. This bit of 
news should interest those persons 
who took English 542 last year and 
who plan to keep up with "their 
poets." What other course on the 
campus has caused such lasting en- 
thusiasm as the one on American and 
English contemporary poets? 

Dr. Clyde Lynch 
Speaks In Lebanon 


Discusses Economic and National 
Problems At Lions 

Dr. Clyde Lynch, presidentelect of 
Lebanon Valley College, arrived in 
Annville from Dayton, Ohio, on Wed- 
nesday morning, November 23. In the 
afternoon, he made his first appearance 
in a speaking capacity at the Lions 
Club, Lebanon, at their weekly dinner 
at the Crystal. He delivered an impres- 
sive address, congratulating the Lions 
Club on its work, and ending up with a 
Thanksgiving Day theme, "Why We 
Should Be Thankful." 

Dr. Lynch spoke on being thankful 
for disillusionment with reference to the 
finality of the capitalistic system which 
has shown its inadequacy under the pres- 
ent form; on the national security, on 
the present day educational system, and 
on religion. 

Dr. Lynch termed the present condi- 
tion, "A Rich Man's Depression," and 
stated that the present day capitalistic 
condition must undergo a radical change 
for the welfare of the mass; that our 
nation is fully aware that the problems 
of other nations are our problems also; 
that our educational system has taught 
men and women how to make a living 
— not how to live; and that our concep- 
tion of neighborliness and brotherly 
love must change from giving to shar- 

Basketeers Start 
Practice Sessions 


Prospects For Conference Title 
Are Good; Heller Will 
Be Missed 

Coach Mylin issued the first call for 
varsity basketball practice on Tuesday 
and was encouraged by the presence of 
a large array of veterans who reported 
for the squad at the frst practice which 
was held on Tuesday night in the High 
School gym. 

Veterans reporting for the team were: 
Morrison, Focht, Williams, Sprenkle, 
Max Light, Stone, and Sheaffer. Around 
these veterans will be built the 1932-33 
team, a team which will miss the serv- 
ices of Heller and Stewart, two all- Con- 
ference men, but a team which should 
be up there among them when the 1932- 
33 basketball curtain comes down next 

Fred Morrison of Elizabeth, N. J., 
who will captain this year's quintet, 
should have a great season. He came 
to Lebanon Valley from Massanutten 
Military Academy, Woodstock, Va., 
where he was high scorer in the prep 
school league for the whole state. "Fred- 
die" played good ball last season but 
left most of the scoring up to his "big 
gun" teammates. "Bill" Focht, lanky 
center from Lebanon, Pa., is expected to 
fill in the vacancy left by Heller. Focht 
was a continual threat last year on the 
varsity and should possess all the quali- 
ties of a "first-rater" with this year's ex- 

Carroll Sprenkle, former York High 
star, alternated at center and forward 
last season and is expected to make a 
strong bid for either berth this season. 
"Russ" Williams, Sunbury, Pa., will be 
on hand to handle his guard position. 
"Russ" and "Sprenk" are only juniors 
and their past varsity experience will be 
a great help to the squad. 

Light, Stone, and Sheaffer rhould 
fight it out for the guard posts. 

From the Freshman squad of last year 
"Hooks" Mylin will have such men as 
Barthold, Smith, Rust, Miller, Rose and 
Arndt with which to fill in his varsity 
vacancies. The first year men had a 
fairly successful team last season and 
several of the team showed promise of 
being good varsity material.

"The Importance of Being Earn- 
est," Delightful Comedy, To 
Appear In Conservatory 

The Junior Class presents for your 
entertainment and approval the play 
"The Importance of Being Earnest," a 
comedy in three acts, by Oscar Wilde. 
This play will be given on Tuesday eve- 
ning, Dec. 6, at 8:00 P. M. in the Engle 
Conservatory. Undoubtedly this will be 
the biggest event on the campus next 
week, and, as such, every student should 
lay immediate plans to attend. The cast 
has been working diligently for the past 
several weeks and now joins with the 
entire Junior Class in asking your pa- 
tronage of the affair. 

To call the play merely a comedy 
hardly does it justice. It is more than 
that, — a real honest-to-goodness work 
with plenty of motion, complex situa- 
tions, and surprising results. All of 
these furnish excellent opportunity for 
genuine acting and interpretation of the 
different types of character, from the so- 
phisticated part of Gwendoline to the 
natural simplicity of Cecily, and the im- 
perturbability of Algernon to the change- 
ableness of Jack, the hero. Other dif- 
ferent points are portrayed in the char- 
acters of Lady Bracknell, Miss Prism, 
and Canon Chasubb, all of whom figure 
quite importantly in the revealing of the 

More could be said about the plot but 
that would be giving away too much. 
Suffice it to say that "The Importance 
of Being Earnest" will give you a most 
pleasing and interesting evening of en- 
tertainment. Don't fail to see it, for it 
will be well worth your time and money. 
Tickets sell for 40 cents, with reserved 
seats 10 cents extra. Don't forget the 
date, December 6; the time, 8:00 P. M., 
and the place, Engle Conservatory. 
Hope to see all of you there! 

Foreign Scholarships 
Offered to Students 

Announcement ha# recently been 
made by the Overseas Educational In- 
stitute of Hanover, N. H., of twenty-five 
full scholarships that it is offering to 
deserving students for study in France, 
Germany, and Switzerland. 

A new development in modern edu- 
cational organization is revealed in the 
program of the institute, a school which, 
in addition to preparing for junior col- 
lege entrance requirements, presents the 
opportunity of travel and association 
with European universities and the cul- 
tural advantages to be derived there- 

The institute provides its entire year's 
program of travel and study abroad at 
a cost approximating at? average year 
at a preparatory school or college, and 
through the medium of an experienced 
faculty, offers a high standard of schol- 
arship. The majority of the time abroad 
is spent between the study centers of 
Grenoble, France, and Bonn, Germany, 
and the remainder of the time in ex- 
cursion and residence in other impor- 
tant centers.

THURSDAY, DEC. 1, 1932 

The world is now focusing its atten- 
tion on Washington wondering what 
will be done about war debts. Will there 
be a revision, cancellation, or neither? 
England and France have made no pro- 
vision for payment in their budgets. 
Other nations will probably default their 
payments. What indeed will be done? 
We are still in a depression which ag- 
gravates the situation and throws very 
little light on the solution. In the end 
it seems as if the debts will always be 
with as. And as plenipotentiaries extra- 
ordinary have their debt problems, we 
ccll2gians have ours. 

In college there is always the problem 
of dues and more dues, which quickly 
mature into debts. We have our class 
dues, our society dues and our club dues, 
all of which must be paid. Time and 
again we have urged that they be paid, 
but from indications it appears that lit- 
tle effort has been made in this line. 

We realize only too well that the de- 
pression has cut deeply into our person- 
al sources of revenues. But does that 
alter the situation? We have contracted 
these debts and they must be paid. If we 
could persuade our creditors to revise or 
cancel it would be a different matter, but 
from our experience with these people 
we know that there is little hope from 
this source. 

The problem of dues does not affect 
the classes under the Seniors much for 
the reason that the Seniors MUST pay 
before they are awarded their diplomas. 
Nevertheless, it is here that we make 
our mistake. The classes always spend 
money before they have any. Conse- 
quently when an occasion arises where 
cash is needed the class is paralyzed. 
This condition is, of course, not con- 
ducive to class activity. If the students 
realized the convenience to themselves 
and to the members of their class who 
are directly responsible for the payment 
of the debts, in regards to the prompt 
payment of their dues, more coopera- 
tion might be obtained. One should al- 
ways remember that it is easier to pay a 
year's dues that it is to pay four years' 

In conclusion, one should always keep 
in mind that there will be no revision, 
much less cancellation, and that you 
must pay all of your dues before you 
are permitted to participate in your 
graduation exercises. 


The world has been wondering where 
Jimmy Walker disappeared ta all of a 
sudden. At present he is contemplating 
a pleasure trip to the Riviera, where he 
will write an autobiography. His latest 
statement to the news scribblers was, "I 
may go to work on my autobiography, 
for which an American magazine has 
offered me 00,000," he continued. "In 
that event, I would stay on the Riviera 
for at least six months and collaborate 
with an American author who is living 

News from the theatre realm this 
week tells us that La belle Garbo donned 
her dark sun glasses, black wig and 
tweed coat and paid a visit to Paris. 
While in the city she attended a slap- 
stick comedy which she enjoyed very 

Danbury (Conn.) Trojans and their 
opponents, the Sing Sing football elev- 
en, tied 6-6 in a game last week. 

From a place near Reading, Pa., 
comes the news that one of the features 
of the November election, one that was 
entirely non-partisan, there was a re- 
vival of a time-honored institution — 
the polling place "kitty." This kitty is 
not an animal, but mostly just an ordi- 
i ary cigar box, into which each voter 
throws some change. In pie-vir days 
the money collec^d in a "kitty" was; 
handed over to the board members, who 
usually distributed sandwiches and beer 
after counting the votes. 

Up to the present date, six nations 
have applied to the United States gov- 
ernment for a postponement of the pay- 
ment of that portion of the war debts 
which is due December 15. The nations 
are: Great Britain, Belgium, France, 
Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Latvia. 
Several of these nations have also failed 
in the payment of the debts due in No- 
vember. Signor Albert Pirelli, a former 
member of the Dawes commission, says 
that the American - problem concerning 
war debts "is to decide whether it is 
worth losing thousands of millions of 
dollars through the crisis to collect from 
Europe a few hundreds of millions of 
dollars of war debt's." 

Signor Guglielmo Marconi, noted in- 
ventor of wireless telegraphy, has an- 
nounced from Rome the invention of an 
ultra-short-wave telephone service. Mar- 
coni has no doubts concerning the prac- 
tical values of this service, and predicts 
a common usage of it commercially 
within the next six months. This short 
wave service makes possible efficient tele- 
phone connections with ships, with is- 
lands, and with distant countries at a 
minimum expense. The transmitting ray 
used by the telephone is of a very high 
frequency and is an isolated wave, which 
makes impossible atmospheric interfer- 
ence and the interruption by other

than war veterans. This time groups of 
"Hunger Marchers," organized by asso- 
ciations for the unemployed and led by 
Communists, are moving towards Wash- 
ington from the North, South, and 
West. It is said to be a well organized 
attempt of the Communists to enter 
Washington and present there the case 
and requests of the unemployed as Con- 
gress convenes in the beginning of De- 
cember. Despite the opposition of the 
police forces of the various cities, the 
forces continue their journey and expect 
to converge on Washington in the near 


The American reading public have 
just been offered a new lmw^paper. It

Debaters May Join 
Tail Kappa Alpha 


Mr. Joseph Hergesheimer, the famous 
West Chester novelist, returned from 
Europe after a vacation of several 
months. Upon giving statements to the 
press, he said, "Women are becoming 
useless. Men and women are out of 
step. They've lost their fundamental 
sympathy and understanding and actual 
need of each other." Upon arriving in 
America, he found that the Democratic 
election has seemed to boost our nation 
morally. Finally concluding, Mr. Herge- 
sheimer seemed to give the idea that 
European health resorts bore him. 

Debaters Express Need 
More Inter-Collegiate 


Leon Trotsky, exiled from Russia four 
years ago, was heard by radio listeners 
in the United States as he spoke from 
Copenhagen where he is now living. 
This former Soviet leader, speaking for 
the first time to an audience in the Eng- 
lish language, upheld the purposes of 
the Russian Revolution, and predicted 
success for the present Soviet system. He 
believes that the sacrifices of the present 
period will develop into greater freedom 
for the masses, and cites the American 
Civil War as a parallel example of his- 

j Faculty Notes j 

Mrs. Greene spent a most enjoyable 
Thanksgiving in Lebanon at the home 
of her sister. She was joined for the 
vacation by her daughter, Miss Yvonne 
Greene, who has been teaching at Bryn 
Mawr in Baltimore. 

Dr. Lynch, Dr. Wagner, Prof. Grimm 
and Dr. Light, Dr. Wallace and Dr. 
Derickson attended a convention at At- 
lantic City on Friday and Saturday. They 
returned to Annville during the late af- 
ternoon of the latter. 

Dr. Lynch was the speaker at a ilunch- 
eon of the Lions Club at Lebanon on 
Wednesday. He was accompanied to the 
meeting by Dr. Wallace and Dr. Wag- 
ner and was made an honorary member 
of the club. 

Miss Meyers spent the holidays at her 
home in Mt. Joy where she entertained 
Dr. and Mrs. Reynolds and Prof, and 
Mrs. Rutledge at dinner Thanksgiving 

Prof, and Mrs. Gingrich had as their 
guests Thanksgiving Day Prof. Ging- 
rich's parents, Mr. and Mrs, C. C. Ging- 
rich from Lawn. 

Dr. and Mrs. Wagner were guests of 
Mrs. G. D. Gossard for Thanksgiving 
Day dinner. Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Bishop 
and Mrs. F. W. Crowder of Baltimore 
were also present. 

Within the past few weeks a new 
movement has been started on our camp- 
us. This movement should be of interest 
to the entire student body, as well as the 
faculty, since it marks a venture into a 
field as yet not entered by Lebanon 

This scheme aims at the fuller recog- 
nition of one of the major activities, 
namely debating. It is an attempt at the 
formation of a debating fraternity. If 
the plan is adopted the forensic contes- 
tants of L. V. C. can boast membership 
in the national society of Tau Kappa 

The information necessary for the 
establishment of a local chapter of Tau 
Kappa Alpha has been supplied by the 
National Secretary-Treasurer of that or- 
ganization. He states that if the absence 
of fraternities at Lebanon Valley reflects 
an unwillingness of the college to per- 
mit secret societies, Tau Kappa Alpha 
scarcely would fall in that category. He 
said they do have a ritual, it is true, but 
it is open to the inspection of anyone 
with a reasonable basis for desiring in- 
formation concerning it. 

There is no reason why L. V. debaters 
should not join up with this organiza- 
tion. As far as is known we comply in 
every detail with the qualifications for 
the chartering of a chapter. Then too 
practically all the colleges with v/hom we 
debate are members. Elizabethtown has 
only recently, March 7, 1932, applied 
for admission. It is hoped that in the 
near future Lebanon Valley will also be 
a member of Tau Kappa Alpha. Such 
a venture would not only give greater 
impetus to debating on our campus but 
would add materially to the prestige of 
the school.

Our hats are off to that brave and 
invincible minute-man, George Konsko. 
At 7:20 Saturday night the silvery tinkle 
of the telephone bell on the second floor 
of the dorm summoned the bold war- 
rior. It was a Clio Crescentina — Irma 
Kieffer. "Would iddie biddie Georgie 
take ootsie wootsie Irma to Clio?" Iddie 
biddie Georgie would and did. Oui, 
Madame! In a scant twenty minutes his 
highness rolled up to West Hall. An 
ever gallant troubadour — the pride of 

Prof. Stokes spent Thanksgiving Day 
at York. 


Coach William, "Reds" Wogan's 
1932-33 Frosh basketball quintet has 
an eight-game schedule arranged to 
date. Negotiations are being made 
at present for at least six more games 
for the yearlings. A complete sched- 
ule will be announced at a future 
date. The schedule to date reads: 
January 27 — Hershey High — Away. 
February 3 — Freeland M. 6C M. — 

February 10 — F. & M. Frosh — At 

February 18 — Albright Frosh — Away. 
February 23 — F. & M. Frosh — Away. 
February 25 — Hershey High - — At 

March 4 — Albright Frosh — At Home. 

Material Looks Promising Despite 
Poor Turnout; Many Stars 
Have Responded 

Eleven promising freshmen reported 
to Coach Wogan's call for yearling bas- 
ketball candidates on Monday. Many 
faces seen on the football field this fall 
are noted among the candidates, among 
them being Patruzio, Boyd and Coda 
Sponaugle, Heisch and Reese. Other 
high and prep school stars noted at the 
first practice were Heinbach, Kowaleski, 
Glenn, Frank, L^hler, Krebs and Her- 

Coach Wogan will make no predic- 
tions as to the strength of his :eam as 
yet but from all appearances Lebanon 
Valley should have another yearling 
team that will rate with any of them. 
The first game will be with the Hershey 
High School cagers at Hershey on Jan- 
uary 27. Hershey always has a good 
team and should test the strength of the 
L. V. Frosh to its utmost. 

Socialist students at the University of 
Michigan are going to have a chance 
to bring their theories into practice. A 
Socialist club has opened a house where 
the barber can cut hair for room and 
board, the farmer student may furnish 
products from his farm and others do 
the cooking and house-keeping. The 
room and board will cost the equivalent 
of $3 a week. Some of the students 
canned fruits and vegetables for the 
larder before school began and others 
built furniture. The house will have 
twenty-nine students. 

Readin' and writin' and 'rithmetic 
droned in my ears. O they make one 
sick. Work like a slave from morning 
to night and jufc when you think you 
are going alright along comes a grade — 
stands your hair up on end and tells 
you your efforts you certainly spend in 
a manner not right for the course you 
are in. Then you swear and you curse 
for you might have been at the head of 
the class if it weren't for tbis or at least 
had a showing if your mind wouldn't 
miss those finer points in the lecture each 
day. Then you lose your head — put your 
books away — and rant and rave 'til your 
choler dies and with new resolution you 
dry your eyes and work again toward a 
new disappointment. 

"What is the difference between a cat 
and a dog? One is canine the other a 
feline. Now what's the difference? 
asked Prof. Butterwick in Ed Class. A 
long silence followed the bombshell- 
Someone's gentle cough seemed to rock 
the room. Krumbiegel shifted uneasily- 
Deep lines began to crease Mary Gos- 
sard's face. The tension was terrific- 
Suddenly: "Mr. Lechthaler?" Another 
pause — then: "Why-er-why-er-a cat has

Now that fall and football are gone 
an d winter is at hand, we turn our 
thoughts to the basketball court and 
the 1932-33 season. Both the varsity 
and Freshmen are practicing daily and 
prospects are bright for a good season 
for both. The varsity has many veterans 
and an array of Sophomore material 
from which a team can be molded while 
the Frosh have an array of former high 
and prep school stars. 

A seventeen game schedule is listed 
for the varsity. Twelve of these games 
are with Eastern Penna. Collegiate 
League teams, while five are with inde- 
pendent college teams. The first game 
will be with the Temple team at Milton 
Hall in Philadelphia on December 15. 
This is the only game before the Christ- 
mas holidays. This should be a close 
game as Temple has only two of last 
year's team as a nucleus for her 1932-33 
squad, bne is counting on her last year's 
rrosh quintet to round out her team. 

Ihe Eastern Penna. Collegiate League 
snould be a stronger and better league 
tftan it was last year as it is now a sev- 
en-team circuit. Lebanon V alley nn- 
ished the season as runner up tor the 
League crown last year. Let's cop that 
old crown this year, team. You can 
do it. 

Charley Gelbert, '28, St. Louis Cardi- 
nal star, and former Lebanon Valley 
athlete, is resting comfortably in the 
Hahnemann Hospital, Philadelphia, pre- 
paratory to an operation on his leg, 
which is necessary due to a gunning ac- 
cident near McConnelsburg, which 
Charlie sustained as he tripped over a 
vine, automatically discharging his gun. 
The success of the operation will decide 
if Gelbert will play baseball again. Eve- 
ryone in the college is pulling for Gel- 
.bert and here's hoping that we see him 
back in the Card lineup next summer. 

Water-boys were of little use as far as 
carrying water was concerned, but they 
used plenty of towels wiping the mire 
from the players' faces and hands. The 
ground-keepers scattered bales of hay 
over the field but it would have been 
an unbearable strain on the Albright 
pocketbook to buy enough of it to really 
help matters. 

Frosh-Soph Tussle 
Ends Without Score 


Cullather and Konsko Star For 
Sophs; Neible Leads Heavy 
Frosh Team 

Well, it's over and which is the better 
team? That question was not settled 
when that annual Frosh-Soph pigskin 
encounter took place last week out in 
the L. V. stadium, before a crowd esti- 
mated at close to two hundred. For four 
ten-minute periods those Frosh and 
Sophs fought up and down the gridiron 
w ith neither team scoring or coming 
closer to scoring than the 10 yard line. 
^ was a battle of the years, with a tre- 
mendously heavy Frosh team bein^ held 
t0 a scoreless tie by a band of super- 
■nspircd Sophomores led bv that dimin- 
utive lineman, Frankie Cullather who 
'nspired his team, a team which was the 
u nderdog, to come back time and again 
t0 rtave off a determined Frosh advance, 
"^hen, too, these same Sophomores did 
a little advancing on their own part, led 
ky Konsko, their fullback and former 
Palrr-erton High backfield ace. Konsko 
made many advances through the heav- 
er Frosh line and engaged in a punting 
du el with Neible of the Frosh, which 
^ a s a feature of the contest. Neible was 
leading Frosh ball toter and made 
many advances around end and through 
line for his team. 

The first half was a punting duel be- 

tween Neible and Konsko, with Konsko 
having a slight edge. However, neither 
team was able to pierce beyond the oth- 
er's fifteen yard marker. 

In the second half we find the Sopho- 
mores taking the aggressive and pierc- 
ing to the Frosh 7 yard line on two oc- 
casions. However on both occasions they 
lost the ball on downs, failing to pierce 
the heavy Frosh line. Thus the game 
ended, with neither team able to show 
a scoring advantage over the other, so 
one could say, why play the game, why 
not toss up?

When you're feeling sort of lonesome, 

and your days are long and blue, 
Don't forget that there's another, feeling 

just the same as you. 
So gather up your courage, trace your 

footstep to her town, 
Leave your troubles on her doorstep, 

enter in, and settle down. 
Then you'll soon begin to realize you 

always want to stay 
By the fireside of the one you'd meant 

to visit for a day 
You'll find the shadows will be fewer, 

and the sun will be more bright 
And you'll learn to view your troubles 

in a different kind of light. 
For you cannot judge a person by 

convictions from a few; 
1... "good" and "bad" count only when 

discovered there by you. 
You can feel your troubles vanish as 

you go from door to door; 
Find the road to understanding and 

you'll never ask for more.

In school days, Clyde's love of studies 
by no means took his mind off the ne- 
cessity of physical fitness. John, Jr., his 
younger brother and constant compan- 
ion, loves to tell of the time Clyde was 
coaxed into a football game with the 
neighborhood boys. In a very few min- 
utes he had wreaked such havoc on his 
opponents that they asked him to quit. 
His boyhood as a whole was well sprink- 
led with wholesome fun, though he man- 
aged to keep a splendid school record 
There was never a fire alarm sounded 
that Clyde did not pedal after the en- 
gines on his bicycle. He jumped off the 
barn with a parachute, went fishing (the 
deep sea variety excluded since he gets 
deathly seasick) and swimming, and 
played "cowboys-an'-Indians." He loved 
humorous situations and poor brother 
John was often the victim of his older 
brother's pranks. Circus, too, held an 
attraction for the boys. Every year 
when the circus rolled around, they 
feared oversleeping in the morning and 
missing the fun of the arrival. They de- 
vised an ingenious system for being up 
on time. They took the dictionary to 
their room where Clyde would read aloud 
for an hour while John slept. Then the 
situation would be reversed, and so on 
until at an early hour the reader awak- 
ened the last sleeper and both went to 
the circus lot. 

At the age of sixteen, under the min- 
istry of the Reverend I. N. Seldom- 
ridge, pastor of the State Street Church 
in Harrisburg, Clyde felt the call to the 
ministry of God. He received great en- 
couragement from his father and the 
pastor. By the time he was nineteen he 
had gained his Annual Conference Li- 
cense at Sunbury, Pa. He was ordained 
six years later — September 28, 1916, — 
by Bishop W. M. Weekley in the Second 
Church, Philadelphia. But the ambition 
of the young man could not be stopped 
here. He matriculated at Lebanon Val- 
ley College in 1914 and during his stu- 
dent days there served four congrega- 
tions in the East Pennsylvania Confer- 
ence, Centerville Circuit, 1910-11, Cham- 
ber Hill and Ebenezer, 1911 to 1912; 
Linglestown and Rockville, 1912 to 1918. 

During his college career he was an 
active participant in social as well as 
scholastic events. They still tell how the 
sophomores tried to keep Clyde, fresh- 
man president, from the traditional class 
banquet. He was captured and trussed 
up securely. To their amazement Clyde 
fell over, apparently strangled by the 
ropes. He was quickly untied, but, be- 
fore the work of resuscitation was be- 
gun, Lynch proved himself very con- 
scious by sailing into the group in the 
room. His cries for help brought his 
classmates mobbing to the scene and in 
short order the success of the banquet 
was assured. 

In 1918 Mr. Lynch was graduated 
from Lebanon Valley College with a 
Bachelor of Arts degree. His next step 
was to enroll in Bonebrake Theological 
Seminary at Dayton, Ohio. Even before 
he was graduated from the Seminary he 
had accepted the call to preach at Eph- 
rata, Pennsylvania, in the United Breth- 
ren Church. 

The Reverend Mr. Lynch's thirst for 
knowledge was not satisfied as yet and 
he 'took the opportunity his nearness af- 
forded to earn a master's degree from 
Lebanon Valley College in Philosophy 
and History. In 1926 the same college 
honored him with a degree of Doctor 
of Divinity. 

After four and one-half years with his 
Ephrata charge, Doctor Lynch accepted 
the pastorate of the Second Church, 
Philadelphia, in October, 1925. Dr. 
Lynch fells of a humorous incident con- 
nected with his change of pastorates. He 
was making a good-bye call on a friend 
of his in Ephrata. The friend said, "Re- 
member, Clyde, you won't be getting all 
the publicity in the big city that you got 
here." The young pastor said publicity 
didn't matter. Yet only a few weeks 

later the church in Philadelphia was 
turned and Mr. Lynch had his picture 
in every paper in the Quaker City. 

During his stay in Philadelphia the 
young preacher pursued knowledge still 
further by taking resident work at the 
University of Pennsylvania. He was 
there employed as an assistant in the 
department of Psychology. He had not 
quite finished his work at the latter in- 
stitution when he was elected to the 
Chair of Homiletics in Bonebrake Theo- 
logical Seminary. But the latter insti- 
tution granted him a year's extension so 
that he might procure his Doctor of 
Philosophy degree in Psychology. This 
degree was granted in 1931. His thesis 
was an extensive compiling of data on 
"The Memory Value of Certain Alleged 
Emotionally Toned Words." The work 
was a further substantiation of argu- 
ment's against the value of "negative" 
advertising. Two words he found are 
specially puzzling in .that they cannot be 
said to arouse either pleasant or unplea- 
sant emotions. These words are common 
ones — carrot and swim. 

During his days as a professor of 
Homiletics and Practical Theology at 
Bonebrake, Doctor Lynch was very much 
in demand for lectures and addresses — 
both at the Seminary and in the sur- 
rounding country. His addresses have 
been published in the Seminary Bulletin 
and in the Religious Telescope and other 

Is the Doctor married? Yes. In June, 
1914, Doctor Lynch and Miss Edith 
Basehore of Harrisburg were united in 
marriage. They have two children, Elea- 
nor, 17, a senior at the Annville High 
School, and John, a freshman at the 
same school. 

On Friday, September 30, 1932, Dr. 
Lynch was notified of his election to the 
presidency of Lebanon Valley College. 
Doctor Lynch brings high qualifications 
to the task ahead of him. No better 
proof of the fact can be found than in 
his own words taken from an address 
entitled "A Doctor of Humanity," de- 
livered by him at the Senior Recogni- 
tion Service of Bonebrake Seminary, in 
June, 1932: 

"The more you come to know human 
nature, the more you will come to know 
the divine nature. The more you love 
your fellowman, the more you will, like 
Abou Ben Adhem, find your name at 
the top of the list." 

The words typify the determination 
of Dr. Lynch to succeed only through 
the complete love and understanding 
of his fellowmen — the ideal of the great- 
est of all Christian leaders.

A minister, walking along the street 
one day, saw a crowd of boys sitting i n 
a ring, with a small dog in the center. 
When he came up to them, he asked 
"What are you doing to the dog?" 

One little boy said, "Whoever tell 
the biggest lie wins it." 

"I am surprised at you little boys, f c 
when I was like you I never told a lie.' 

There was silence for a while, until 
one of the boys shouted, "Hand him up

Large Number of Students Wins 
Trophy For Lebanon Valley 

Principal Speaker 

A number of Lebanon Valley students 
participated in the Student Faculty Con- 
ference held in the Zion Lutheran 
Church at Harrisburg last week-end, De- 
cember 2, 3, and 4. The conference was 
held under the auspices of the Pennsyl- 
vania State Student Council of the State 
Young Men's Christian Association. 

The whole conference was built 
around the theme "The Power of Fel- 
lowship." The opening speaker was 
Ralph W. Sockman, pastor of the Madi- 
son Avenue Methodist Church in New 
York City. His Friday evening subject 
was "The High Way of Human Fellow- 
ship." By the use of well-selected analo- 
gies and especially pertinent illustrations 
his address was driven indelibly into the 
minds of all the delegates present. He 
characterized life as a combination of 
group travel and personal exploration. 
We start life in the family group. Then 
we go to. school. We study in groups 
and thus receive education in fellow- 
ship. When we get through school we 
go back to the community. To be effec- 
tive we must fit into the fellowship of 
the community. We need to travel to- 
gether to get anywhere in religion. If 
that is true, how are we to learn to live 
together in fellowship ? 

Dr. Sockman now pointed out six 
ways of promoting fellowship. First, we 
must have a motive. All too often the 
motive for going to school is to learn 
how to make money and not to train 
ourselves for fellowship. Fellowship with 
God in prayer and meditation is made 
easier if we have a specific problem con- 
fronting us. Second, we must develop 
self-control. Self-control becomes a more 
delicate and subtle thing the closer we 
live together. We must watch our shad- 
ows of influence. Today a person can 
not build a skyscraper as high as he 
pleases. He muse take the shadow into 
account. For the same reason, we must 
be careful of the shadows of influence 
we cast. However, if we adjust our lives 
to Jesus Christ, the light, we can be sure 
our shadows of influence will fall right. 
In the third place, we must have a re- 
spect for our fellow men. We must learn 
that man is a noble being with whom we 
Want fellowship. American manhood 
never showed such a fellowship as in the 
Present time. Fourth, we must have a 
kind of Christlike imagination, in order 
to understand our fellow men. We must 
look back of the appearances and see 
now life looks. We say, "Do unto others 
a s you would have them do unto you" 
but we don't cultivate our imagination 
e nough to know what the other fellow 
w ants done. Along with imagination, 
w e must have, in the fifth place, co- 
operation. Lastly, we must have a con- 
Se cration for fellowship. We all have 
moods of feeling brotherly, but life 
ls n't as one long after-dinner mood. We 
need the kind of fellowship that can go 
through all moods, the kind that can 
Sa y "Father, forgive them, for they know 
n °t what they do."

"Mourning Becomes Electra," Mara-

L. V. C. Spectators 

Instead of the usual Christmas pa- 
geant, given after the annual banquet, 
this year the Y. W. C. A. and the Y. M. 
C. A. cabinets have planned to sponsor 
a Christmas recital in Engle Hall at 
8:20 P. M. December 15. The recital 
is in charge of Mr. Edward P. Rutledge. 

The program will be quite different 
from the programs of former years. It 
will consist of numbers by the chorus, 
by the orchestra, and by a brass quartet 
and there will be vocal solos and carols 
sung by the audience, with orchestral 

On Saturday evening the Theatre 
Guild presented the play "Mourning 
Becomes Electra" to a large and appre- 
ciative audience gathered in the Majes- 
tic theatre. This play, written by Eugene 
O'Neill, is really a trilogy of three plays 
so closely connected that they form one 
gigantic whole. 

"Homecoming," which is the title of 
the first play, tells us of the hatred be- 
tween Lavinia and her mother, Chris- 
tine; of Lavinia's jealous spying on her 
mother, and of Adam Brant's love for 
Christine. To a home filled with so much 
jealousy and hate, General Mauron re- 
turns weary of war and death, eager for 
life and love. Christine is utterly in- 
capable of understanding him, or of 
sympathizing with him, so great is her 
love for Adam. She plots his death, 
and the first play ends with his murder 
and Lavinia's suspicions. 

It is in the second play, "The Hunt- 
ed," that Orwin Mauron returns home

William James Durant, B- A., M. A., 
Ph.d. was born in North Adams, Massa- 
chusetts, in 1885. Durant received his 
early education at Saint Peters College, 
Jersey City, N. J. 

In 1913 he married Miss Ida Kauf- 
man. After several years he resumed his 
schooling at Columbia University. 

This was followed by a period of 
teaching in Seton Hall College in South 
Orange, N. J. 

In 1917 his big chance came to him 
and he became instructor in Philosophy 
at Columbia University. Here he en- 
tered into a period of earnest study and 
extensive research. 

Durant's next move was as a director 
of Labor Temple School. All this time 
he was busy writing and rewriting manu- 
scripts. Finally, in 1917, he had pub- 
continued on Page 4, Column 5) 

Leonard Volkin To 
Head 1933 Gridsters 

At a meeting of the varsity "L" Club 
on Tuesday, Leonard "Joe" Volkin was 
elected to lead the Lebanon Valley foot- 
ball team for the 1933 season. Joe is a 
product of Mt. Pleasant (Pa.) high 
school where he was one of the best 
tackles in the Western Penna. Athletic 
Association. Joe graduated from Mt. 
Pleasant High school in 1930 and came 
to L. V. C. where he has played at the 
tackle position for the past three years. 
He is one of the hardest charging men 
on the team and has that do or die 
spirit. We look forward to a victorious 
gridiron season for L. V. next year with 
Volkin as a leader. 

The Green Blotter Absorbs Five New Inkspots 

The "Green Blotter Club" entrance 
contest was closed last Wednesday. Two 
entries were chosen from the work of 
eight female writers, and two from male 
writers. The new members are: Lois 
Miller, "Shadows On the Sea"; Jane 
Shellenberger, "The Railroad Bridge"; 
David Yake, "A Street Corner", and 
Stewart Byers, "My Life." The members 
also selected Edmund Umberger to fill 
the Junior vacancy. 

The group held a regular meeting on 
Thursday night at the home of Dr. 
Struble. Marion May opened the eve- 
ning by reciting an original limerick. 
Jane Smith read a paper on "Colle- 
gians." According to the custom of the 
club, the manuscript was roundly criti- 
cized. Martha Kreider, the most poetic- 
ally gifted person, read a number of her 
selections. One of these, a parody on 
the alma mater of Bucknell, was a strik- 
ingly beautiful poem. Edmund Umber- 

ger and Henry Palatini read papers on 
various subjects. Throughout the meet- 
ing the readings were interspersed with 
discussion including plans for a chat- 
book to be published some time in the 

The evening was climaxed by the 
reading by Mae Fauth of the first chap- 
ter of the club novel. The opening she 
has chosen is a most clever satire on 
college life, packed full of delicious 
humor and skillful dialogue. The work 
was then handed to Mr. Palatini who 
will compose the second chapter before 
the next meeting. 

Over some delicious refreshments 
served by Mrs. Struble, plans were made 
for the next meeting of the organiza- 
tion. The new members are all to con- 
tribute a discussion of the "Green Blot- 
ter" in any vein they choose. All mem- 
bers will bring a letter to Santa Claus 
either of gratitude or of criticism. Babe 

Earley will try his hand at the art of 
short story writing. 

In the two meetings thus far the club 
has followed its aim and purpose. Each 
manuscript is frankly discussed and cri- 
ticized by all members. It has been 
agreed that thus only can writing ability 
be improved. 

The new members are a valuable 
group. Lois Miller and Stuart Byers, 
judging by their manuscripts, have a 
ready flow of wit and cleverness at their 
pen points. Jane Shellenberger, whose 
work was more serious than the majority, 
showed an extremely keen eye for detail 
in her description. David Yake's paper 
was a distinctly successful attempt at 
modern realism. Edmund Umberger's 
ability has already been unquestionably 
proved on the campus. 

The "Green Blotter Club" plans, in 
the near future, to cooperate with the 
Reader's Club in bringing writers of no 
mean repute to lecture in the chapel. 

Nordic Literature 
Analyzed At Club 


Rolvaag, Lagerlof And Undset 
Are Authors Discussed At 
Reader's Club 

Scandinavian literature was discussed 
at Reader's Club which met November 
29 at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Wal- 
lace. The meeting was planned by Miss 
Kathryn Mowrey. 

Miss Winona Schroff gave a history 
of the lives of the authors whose works 
were discussed. She began with E. O. 
Rolvaag. Rolvaag received his college 
education in America due to the influ- 
ence of an uncle living in the Dakotas 
and Rolvaag's own interest in James 
Fenimore Cooper's works. However his 
graduate training he received at the 
University of Oslo. 

Miss Myers gave a report on Rolvaag's 
trilogy which includes "Giants of the 
Earth," "Peter Victorious" and "Their 
Father's God." The purpose of the 
trilogy was to show how the customs and 
traditions of the Old World either are 
remolded or die out in the country called 
America. It is a history of the develop- 
ment of the Dakotas and at the same 
time shows the struggle for reconcili- 
ation between the Norwegian Protestant- 
ism and the Irish Catholic faith. 

Miss Schroff turned to Selma Lager- 
lof who as a child was a profuse reader. 
She came in contact with good libraries 
and the theatre at the age of nine. She 
was educated to become a teacher but 
she was determined to write. Her first 
works were sonnets and folk tales. In 
1917 she received the degree of Doctor 
Honoris Cansa and in 1909 won the 
Nobel prize. 

Jane Shellenberger volunteered a re- 
port on "The Ring of the Lowenskalds." 
The story centers upon a ring which 
brings misfortune to all those who come 
in contact with it. 

This master tale reflects all the Scan- 
dinavian philosophy of fatalism and the 
grim and relentless sense of bleakness of 
the Norse. 

Sigrid Undset was the third novelist 
discussed. She is probably the best 
known Norwegian author in this coun- 
try. She was born of educated parentage 
and received her education at private 
schools. At the age of sixteen she was 
prepared to enter upon a commercial 
career. For the next ten years she 
dreamed of a literary one. At the age 
of twenty-six she started to write. Miss 
Kathryn Leisey reviewed the trilogy, 
"Kristin Lavransdatt'er," Miss Leisey 
summed up the author's purpose as the 
study of peasant life in the 14th cen- 
tury with the glorification of the Catho- 
lic church. Moreover the author shows 
a vivid picturesque style and uses a wierd 
fascinating atmosphere. 

As the last number on the program, 
several of Henrik Ibsen's plays were re- 
viewed by Dorothy Jackson. She gave 
the gist of "Ghosts," "The Duck" and 
"Hedda Gabler," showing again the 
morose theme which is characteristic 
of all the Scandinavian authors. 

On the whole, the evening was quite 
interesting, even though the books and 
plays discussed showed a heaviness of 
style and a sordidness of theme. 

The next meeting will be held Decem- 
ber 13 with Humor as its topic.

Every now and then the Men's Senate 
is 'put on the carpet ' by the t acuity tor 
some inf raction ot the rules wnicn they 
have been unable to enforce, lhis oc- 
curred last weeK. it seems that a Dottle- 
tnrowing picnic tooic piace in the Men s 
Dormitory last week wnich the Senators 
did not suppress. 'ine investigation 
which naturally followed led to a meet- 
ing of the Men's Senate and the faculty 
in which the efficacy of the Senate was 
discussed. Also, the Faculty let their 
wishes, in regards to this matter, be 
known in no uncertain terms with the 
result that the Senate is ever the more 
on the look-out for kindred misde- 

On the whole, the problem has its 
complications. It is, we know, extremely 
painful to indict a friend, especially if 
that friend is a roommate. Again there 
is the stigma of "stool pigeon" with 
which to contend. No one desires that 
appellation. But all of this does not take 
anything away from the fact that the 
Senate is now treading on dangerous 
ground. A recurrence of last week's epi- 
sode might even be the "swan song" of 
Lebanon Valley student government. 

However, the problem is not so much 
the Senate's as it is the students'. No 
government, student or otherwise, can 
function effectively without the consent 
and cooperation of its constituents. If 
there is anything at all in the theory of 
government, we then believe that the 
students voiced their consent in the elec- 
tions last June. They elected men who 
they thought were the most competent 
to govern. Now it seems the students 
may have had different ideas on the sub- 
ject. It seems that the gentlemen on the 
Senate are merely friends of the consti- 
tuents who are supposed to wink at all 
infractions. If such is the case, the men 
of the Senate have found out different- 
ly. In fact, we are inclined to think that 
the Senate knew differently all along. 
But even so, considering the fact that 
they are friends, did they deserve the em- 
barrassment incurred by the actions on 
the second floor of the dorm last week? 
That offense was not only against our 
society, but also against the individuals 
who compose the Men's Senate. 

Granting that the Senate has winked 
at numerous offenses, one should always 
remember that there is a limit. That 
limit was reached last week. The next 

offender, we have been assured, will Le 
dealt with severely. 

Above all, one should consider, in 
such a predicament, the desirability jf 
student government. Do you wish to re- 
tain the Senate, or do you want anothe r 
form of government, possibly even more 
undesirable? If you desire retention we 
suggest that you concur. If you desi e 
a change — the path is yours.

Mount McKinley, the highest moun-

excel in the realm of low temperatures. 
A thermometer left there nineteen years 
ago by an explorer and found recently 
by another party, is reported to have read 
as low as 95 degrees below zero. The 
temperature may even have been lower 
at times, since 95 was the lowest possible 
degree that the thermometer was able 
to register.

Miss Elser Entertains 
Students In Chapel 

On Friday morning during the chapel 
period, Miss Martha Elser of Penbrook, 
a Freshman of the music department, 
delighted us with a most charming and 
excellently rendered violin program. 
Miss Elser interpreted the difficult 
"Scene de Ballet," by Charles de Beriot, 
with technical finess and grace. 

Miss Elser studies violin under Pro- 
fessor Malsh. Besides being concert mas- 
ter of the Lebanon Valley College or- 
chestra, she is a member of the Harris- 
burg Symphony orchestra, the Harris- 
burg Wednesday Club and Camp Curtin 
Methodist Church orchestra. 

In April Miss Elser received the vio- 
lin award of the Pennsylvania state con- 
test sponsored by a nation-wide musical 



The twentieth season of the Reading 
Symphony Orchestra opened with its 
first concert on Sunday afternoon, De- 
cember 4. Mr. Hans Kindler is the con- 
ductor of the orchestra and Mr. Otto 
Wittich is concert master. The concert 
was given in the Rajah theatre. 

The violin soloist for the concert was 
Mr. George Ockner. He, accompanied 
by the orchestra, very ably rendered 
Lalo's "Symphonie Espagnole." 

Miss Adelaide Sanders of Lebanon, a 
special student in Engle Conservatory, 
is a member of the Reading Symphony 
Orchestra. Miss Sanders is a violiniit 
and violarist of no mean ability and she 
and the harpist are the only women in 
the Reading orchestra.

Tsk, Tsk; Or Notes Of 
A Female Columnist 

Just a couple of pre-Thanksgiving 
thoughts — a little late but, nevertheless — 

Olive Kauffman compared our own 
Soph-Frosh football game to the game 
played by the Marx brothers in "Horse- 
feathers" — maybe, but never yet have I 
seen an ash can on wheels in Annville — 
or football players who remembered 
their Mother Goose rhymes. 

I sat opposite one of Bucknell's star 
football players on the Reading diner 
while going home last Wednesday. Says 
he to me "Coach Snavely certainly does 
believe in applying his own L. V. C. 
football training to our squad!" "Yes," 
queried I, "in what way?" "Well," he 
answered, "whenever a player is carried 
out of a game unconscious, the coach al- 
ways runs up and kisses him." This 
ought to go in Ripley's "Believe It or 
Not." So that's L. V. C.'s football in- 
fluence? If that's the case, one of our 
players ought to write a book, "Trials 
and Tribulations of a Mylinman." 

What is the usual question and an- 
swer of the after-vacation era? You 
know, "Did you have a good time?" and 
"I'll say I did" or "Swell!" Deciding 
to be original, this writer asked her 
friends, upon returning to North Hall 
at 9:30 P. M., "Did you eat a lot?" 
The answer was always "Did I? — Too 
much!" At 9:45 various strange odors 
came creeping in my transom. Investi- 
gation proved that every room in the 
hall was trying its hand at coffee, toast, 
soup, spaghetti, and griddle cakes. 
"Cooking! What crimes are committed 
in thy name!" Results? Five pains, and 
twenty-two to come. 

The waiter forgets itself every once in 
a while to become intellectual. Tuesday 
morning found Mitchell Jordan "par- 
lez-vousing," and "Pop" Schaeffer 
grunting German phrases right back at 
him. Said Jordan, all of a sudden, to 
Haidee Blubaugh, "Avez-vous froid, 
mademoiselle?" Silence! Jordan re- 
peats, "Avez-vous froid, mademoiselle?" 
Silence again! "Do you know what I'm 
saying?" asks Jordan. Whereupon Hai- 
dee raises an eyebrow and drawls out in 
true southern style, "I don't know, but 
it sounded as though you were calling 

Why don't we vote to give medals to 
the following? 

Speg for his ambitious look in leav- 
ing classes. Early for his undying ado- 
ration of Garbo. Dot Jackson for sleep- 
ing in Room 27, North Hall's perpetual 
ice-box. Whomsoever it may concern for 
changing the midnight theme song of 

the boys dorm from "Say It Isn't So" 
to "How Deep Is the Ocean?" 

Harry Whiting for his ability to do 
away with several dishes of butter in the 
dining hall. 

Clements for his apparent enjoyment 
of a Thanksgiving in Annville. 

Think about these facts in your spare 
moments! George Wood is cultivating 
a curl on his forehead. Thelma McCrea- 
ry is trying to grow fat gracefully. Max 
Light can answer history questions as 
fast as Dr. Stevenson can ask them. 
Lebanon Valley co-eds are growing 
switches for business purposes — hence all 
the recent hair-cuts. Kowaleski says he 
can go only for the "cute" girls on the 
campus. We'll have to let him be one 
of our judges in the forthcoming "Quit- 
tie" popularity contest. Fernsler says 
that "come seven, come eleven" in a 
crap game is a prayer. If that's so, the 
amount of religion in the boys' dorm is 
overwhelming! Nuff said. 

Advice to the campus: Keep your 
eyes and ears open until ten o'clock in 
the evening. There's still lots going on 
at that late, late hour. Example — "The 
Ad building and Conservatory rooms 
the Tuesday night before Thanksgiving

without winding. 

Lois Miller: Wonderful! and h

Athletic Asso. Awards 
Emblems To 21 
Members Of Squad 

Twenty-one members of this year's 
varsity football squad were awarded the 
varsity "L" at a meeting of the college 
athletic association which was held last 
week. Of these twenty-one only four 
will not be back with the squad next 
year. These four are: Stone, hard 
charging fullback who completed his 
third year on the L. V. varsity; Captain 
"Murphy"Kazlusky, right guard and de- 
fensive center of this year's eleven who 
rounded out his fourth year with the 
team this past season; Wogan, playing 
his fourth year with the varsity this year 
ended up his college football career in 
a blaze of glory. Wogan is one of the 
hardest fighting centers ever turned out 
at L. V. C. Last of the seniors is Wood, 
sub quarterback who saw action in most 
of the games this season and ended his 
career for L. V. with his great game 
against Albright. Those who received 
letters and will be back with the team 
next year are Captain-elect Volkin, tack- 
le; Boran, quarterback; Barthold, half- 
back; Furlong, guard; Feeser, halfback; 
Kandrat, right end; Light, halfback; 
Lesher, halfback; Lantz, tackle; Rose, 
tackle; Rust, quarterback; Sponaugle. 
guard; Williams, end; Whiting, full 
back; Jordan, manager. 



(Continued from Page One) 
Dr. Sockman's address on Saturday 
morning was along the same line — "Fel- 
lowship with God." He began by as- 
suming that there is a God. He did not 
take up that phase of the question. He 
brought into the minds of the delegates 
two pictures, one in John, that of Jesus 
Christ coming through the door unaided 
into the upper room, and the other in 
Revelation, that of Jesus standing at the 
door and knocking. This illustrates a 
two-fold situation. In the first place, 
sometimes God comes in whether we 
want Him to or not. Dr. Sockman grant- 
ed that a man can fill up some part of 
his life with so many activities that he 
doesn't think of God, but sooner or later 
He will come in. Sooner or later we come 
to the point where God comes in. We 
can run business on a game of wits. 
However, though business is not con- 
verted to religion, sooner or later God 
comes into it. Thus, there is always a 
sense in which God comes in of his own 

Then there is a sense in which we can 
control God's coming into our lives 
Personality is made so that we open the 
door from within. So when God knocks 
it is up to us whether we'll open or not. 
God doesn't prove Himself to a man 
whose mind is lying on its back. You've 
got to go out for it. You've got to pay 
a price. Then after we find God, we 
must do something about it. Too often 
we are caught in the rushing stream. 
Well, the rushing stream can turn the 
waterwheels, but it doesn't show a re- 
flection of the stars. We go to the silent 
pool for that. We really get interested 
in a thing when we work at it. If you 
are going to get any sense of reality you 
must get it by yourself and come to grips 
with some of the principles of Christ. 
You may be awkward at first. You may 
have the impulse, but not the mastery. 
All you need is a local drill ground and 
Personal leadership and guidance. We 
have the ideals, but we don't want to do 
'he squad drills. Now, coming to pray- 
e r and meditation, prayer will be more 
v 'vid when we seek the problem first — 
when our prayers come like wounded 
a nimals. We see the skeletons of prehis- 
toric animals and wonder who was so 
m 'shty as to be able to kill such mon- 
gers. Upon asking the scientist, we are 
'old that the climate changed and they 
"led. Change the atmosphere of some 
°f these big problems that you face, and 
'Hey w iH di e . 

The re is no doubt that Dr. Sockman 
^as one of the most outstanding leaders 

that has been obtained for conferences 
in this area thus far. 

The devotional services of the confer- 
ence were very inspiringly led by Rev. 
Jack Hart. Rev. Hart has been chap- 
lain at the University of Pennsylvania 
for quite a few years. His character 
and personality are the more magnetic 
because of the fact that he is both a 
four-letter man of Penn and also an in- 
fluential Christian leader. 

Rev. Hart remarked that it is the busi- 
ness of our religion to adjust both the 
personal and divine relationship of hu- 
manity. Society's greatest enemy is jeal- 
ousy which destroys refined personal fel- 
lowship. For the individuals of a less 
complex society, the problem of fellow- 
ship was not so important, but in our 
modern society we must answer for our- 
selves the question, "How can I adjust 
myself to the corporate life?" The an- 
swer lies in the life of love as exempli- 
fied by the life of Jesus of Galilee. This 
fellowship of love affects nations as well 

as individuals. "Above all nations is 
humanity, above all humanity is God 
who loves all." 

The second morning's devotional 
period was again led by Rev. "Jack" 
Hart. Preparing the group for the day's 
discussion of "Fellowship with God" he 
confined his talk to that sort of fellow- 
ship. The universe seems larger as we 
learn more of it, and with our increas- 
ing scientific knowledge our concept of 
God must change. As a consequence 
our devotion is strengthened rather than 
weakened. Our knowledge of the world 
emphasizes the reality of a divine guid- 
ance. It is for us as human beings to 
cultivate a sense of the divine, which is 
the spiritual life. Religion forms the 
overtones of life. 

At the Conference banquet Saturday 
night, Dr. C. A. Lynch spoke very im- 
pressively on the "Life of Christian Ad- 
venture." Life always contains an ele- 
ment of chance. Although science, 
through its experiments, has been at- 

tempting to control conditions and has 
succeeded to a large degree, chance can 
never be eliminated from the human 
life. Society disapproves of gambling, 
but there is tolerance and respect for a 
spirit of adventuresomeness, of chance- 
taking for social benefit. Barnabas and 
Paul "hazarded their lives" for Christ. 
Jesus did not promise selfish advantages, 
but the opposite. The religion which 
does not promote fellowship is not a re- 
ligion, but a superstition and as a super- 
stition must pass into oblivion as the 
others before it. Love is the only power 
to lift us to higher living. Our religion 
also must bring its experience up to the 
standard of its symbols. It must attain 
in reality to the spirit of the cross, the 
spirit of aggressiveness and of deter- 
mination as its symbols have indicated

Our faculty was represented at this 
conference by Dr. Lynch and Professors 
Butterwick, Ritchie and Grimm. The 
students who represented our local asso- 

ciation were Stuart Werner, Chester 
Goodman, Charles Kraybill, Carl Myers, 
Samuel Ulrich, Harry Zech, Allan 
Ranck, Kenneth Whisler, Melvin Hitz, 
Richard Walborn, Philip Underwood, 
Homer Kendall, Martin Flinchbaugh, 
Robert Sholter, Robert Cassel and Wil- 
liam Clarke. For this splendid delega- 
tion the association was awarded a large 
engraved silver plaque. The award will 
be displayed in the "Y" room as soon 
as it is received from the engraver. Since 
Lebanon Valley College was represented 
so well, our campus should and will 
share in the fine spirit and new ideals 
which radiated from the conference. 

La Vie Collegienne extends its 
deepest sympathy to Dr. Lynch 
and to William Rose, whose fathers 
died recently; to Chester Good-

to fall under the influence of these two 
jealous women. He finally allows La- 
vinia to attempt to prove her charges 
against her mother. She confronts 
Christine with the evidence in a most 
dramatic scene and Orin is ready to do 
anything. They follow their mother to 
Boston where Adam Brant's ship lies in 
the harbor, and in a fit of fearful jeal- 
ousy, Orin kills Brant. Upon his return 
home, he boastingly tells his mother what 
he has done. She is frantic and, realiz- 
ing she has nothing for which to live 
longer, she commits suicide while La- 
vinia tries to convince herself that it is 
the only just thing for her to do. 

"The Haunted" takes place a year 
and a half later. Lavinia and Orin re- 
turn to the old Mauron homestead after 
a long vacation in the South Sea Isles. 
One is immediately struck by the re- 
semblance of Lavinia to her mother and 
of Orin to his father. Gradually the 
conviction grows that now Lavinia is 
shake off the past, to be happy and to 
Christine and Orin, Ezra Mauron. La- 
vinia, however, is fully determined to 
marry Peter Niles, a rather common- 
place man, who has always been in love 
with her. Orin, however, was tormented 
by his memories of the past anJ believed 
that neither he nor his sister could mar- 
ry since they were inextricably bound to 
one another. He writes a history of the 
Mauron family and gives it to Hazel but 
under his sister's influence takes it back 
again. Upon hearing that Lavinia still 
intends to marry Peter, he leaves the 
room to clean his gun and commits sui- 
cide. Lavinia is brought to realize that 
she cannot marry Peter and be happy. 

The play is modeled on an old Greek 
legend and preserves that old Greek at- 
mosphere of fate so difficult to obtain 
in a modern play written for a modern 
audience. The settings and costumes are 
very simple but excellently well suited to 
the tragedy. Mr. Anderson in criticis- 
ing the play for the Evening Journal 
says, "With the austerity of classic dra- 
ma, O'Neill has used the 'Electra' of 
Sophocles as the basis for a New Eng- 
land tragedy which releases the same 
fearful impulse of revenge, rises in a 
tremendous tide of hatred which en- 
gulfs and extinguishes a whole family 
and rece.'as to the splendors of a dim 
and melancholy ending — all passions 
spent. . . ." 

Those members of the Reader's Club 
who attended were Dorothy Jackson, 
Mary Groff, Jane Shellenberger, Jane 
Muth, Marietta Ossi, Minna Wolfskeil, 
Dorothy Forry, Arline Heckrote, Glo- 
ria LaVanture, Mary Gossard, Marian 
Kruger, Helen Lane, Gladys Withelder, 
Katherine Witmer, Betty Schaak, Percy 
Clement's, Earl Hoover, Charlie Hauck, 
Charlie Myers, Phil Denton, Frederick 
Lehman, Babs Earley, George Klitch 
and Dr. Wallace. 




A debating meeting was held Thurs- 
day, November 17, to select tentative 
teams. Prof. Stokes had charge of the 
meeting. The men's team was set up in 
this fashion: Affirmative, Mr. Etter, Mr. 
Byer, Mr. Goodman and Mr. Buzzell; 
negative, Mr. Johnson, Mr. Walmer, 
Mr. Reber and Mr. Heilman. Mr. Buz- 
zell Mr. Heilman were selected as 

The women's team was not entirely 
filled. The members chosen were: Miss 
Eddy, Miss Schaak, Miss Earnest and 
Miss Mowrey. The other four places 
will be given to freshmen who will prove 
their worth in a triangle debate. This 
debate will take place within a short 
time. The team is set up thus: Affrma- 
tive, Miss Evelev, Miss Leisey, Miss 
Schroff and Miss Shellenberger; nega- 
tive, Miss Shearer, Miss Erdman and 
Miss Gillan. The captains selected were 
Miss Shellenberger and Miss Gillan. 

The first students' recital of the year 
will be held in Engle Hall on Tuesday 
evening, December 13. There will be 
vocal numbers, piano, violin, and organ 
numbers, a bassoon solo, and a special 
feature — a clarinet ensemble. The en- 
semble will play an arrangement of 
Dvorak's "Largo" from the New World 
Symphony, especially arranged for this 
group by a member of the junior class 



With the swinging of paddles and 
the "whatnot" which usually accompan- 
ies such proceedings, twelve winners of 
the varsity "L" were initiated into the 
secrets of varsity "L" Club last Tuesday 
night. Of this number, there was one 
Senior, Claude Donmoyer, captain of 
the tennis team, who for the past three 
years has been the most consistent win- 
ner on our tennis team. Donmoyer 
should be at his best this spring when he 
begins to wield his racket for his fourth 
year at L. V. Kandrat and Jordan are 
the Juniors who were initiated. Kandrat 
won his letter in football as an end. He 
should cop an end birth on next year's 
varsity. Jordan was the manager of this 
year's eleven. Bill Smith, a Sophomore, 
was the only three letter man in the 
group, winning his "L" in Frosh basket- 
ball, baseball, as a pitcher and as an 
end on the 193 2 eleven. Whiting, Rose, 
Lantz, Furlong and Barthold all won 
the major "L" for the first time with 
this year's football team and thus were 
eligible for membership. Lesher and 
Coda Sponaugle were the only Frosh 
who were initiated, having won their 
spurs on this year's football team. Cas- 
per Arndt, star shortstop on last year's 
baseball team, now a Sophorflore, was 
the twelfth man initiated. 


Delta Lambda Sigma held its regular 
meeting Friday night in Delphian hall. 

The chaplain, Miss Mowrey, took 
charge of the devotions. 

After devotions all the pledges were 
given the second degree of initiation. 

A short program was then given. It 
was what is commonly known as extem- 
poraneous program, or as we heard, 
"spontaneous combustion." Marion Kru- 
ger took charge of the program and 
acted as a toastmaster. She called on 
Gloria LaVanture to give a few imper- 
sonations. She very cleverly imperson- 
ated quite a few of the professors. 

Then she called on Gem to play the 
piano, so Gemmie very shyly stole to the 
piano and tickled the ivories as only 
Gemmie can play. 

Trula, a very able public speaker, gave 
us a talk on "Morals, What We Don't 
Have," or "As You Desire Me." I am 
sure that after her talk, none of have 
any of those??? 

Mabel Chamberlain, in her talk on 
"The Importance of Rubber Bicycles." 
Perhaps for detail you might ask Mabel. 

Estelle Delgado gave us a very en- 
lightening talk on "New York, and 
Where to Go." 

Charlotte Stahley sang to us a few pop- 
ular numbers and brought this very in- 
formal meeting to a close by singing 
"We Just Couldn't Say Good-bye." 

And thus ended an evening of "spon- 
taneous combustion."

. . . AND . . . 



William Barnes To 
Head Kalo During 
Ensuing Term 

Kalozetean Literary Society held its 
regular business meeting December 6 in 
Kalo hall. 

Mr. Krumbiegel as president opened 
the meeting. Mr. Charles Furlong, re- 
cording secretary of the organization, 
read the minutes of the past meeting. 
They were approved, and advanced ma- 
terial was taken up. 

The main feature of the program was 
to elect new officers. The club voted for 
the nominated members and the results 
of the election were: William Barnes, 
president; George Shirk, vice president; 
George Klitch, critic; Gerald Russell, re- 
cording secretary; Charles Hauck, cor- 
responding secretary; Warren Mentzer, 
chaplain; Earnest Koch, pianist; Robert 
Sausser, sergeant-at-arms; Stewart By- 
ers, sergeant-at-arms; Carl Nelson, ser- 

Congratulations are extended to the 
new officers. 

A report was given on the social night, 
that Kalo is planning for this Saturday 
night. Mr. Charles Hauck, as chairman, 
reports that his committee guarantees a 
good time. 

Mr. Clements gave a report on the 
initiation committee. The chairman 
stated that the third degree will be given 
in the gymnasium on Friday night. 

The meeting was then adjourned. 



A regular student prayer meeting was 
held last Wednesday evening, Nov. 30, 
in Philo hall. Kathryn Mowrey presided 
over the meeting. Devotions were con- 
ducted by Iva Claire Weirich, and then 
as a special feature, Rae Anne Reber 
sang a splendid solo, "Morning Greet- 
ing," by Schubert. Accompaniment was 
furnished by Virginia Summers. 

The speaker of the evening was Luel- 
la Heilman, who chose for her subject 
"The Quest for the Abundant Life." 
She used the tenth chapter of John as 
a scripture, and built up her talk on 
four aspects of human life, — physical, 
mental, social, and spiritual. 

Speaking of the physical aspect, Miss 
Heilman said that the life which counts 
is one that is supported by a strong, 
well developed body. Mentally, it is a 
duty for us as college students to make 
a path for others to follow. Continuing, 
socially she said that the only way to 
meet social problems of today is to break 
down prejudice and practice brother- 
hood. And lastly, God must be made a 
partner in each person's life. Then the 
reward for the quest will be a life grow- 
ing more like Christ. 

The meeting was concluded with a 
prayer circle, with Ruth Coble giving 
the final prayer.

'34 Thespians Give Finished Performance of Famous Satirical Comedy; 
Large Audience Delighted By Typical Wildean 
Epigrams and Paradoxes 

On the evening of December 6, the 
Junior Class of Lebanon Valley College 
by means of much cleverness, and a great 
deal of merriment and levity, succeeded 
in convincing a willing audience of The 
Importance of Being Earnest. 

"I am sick to death of cleverness," 
says Jack in this famous play by Oscar 
Wilde: "everybody is clever nowadays. 
The thing has become an absolute public 
nuisance." But Jack, unfortunately for 
him, lived in a sparkling three-act world 
where nobody ever speaks sensibly about 
a serious subject, and where everyone 
from the butler to the parson revels in 
paradox, saucy epigram, and razor-edge 

The story centers around the near- 
romantic adventures and misadventures 
of Mr. John Worthing, very ably repre- 
sented by Allen Buzzell. Life would have 
been a gay song for the accomplished 
Jack Worthing had it not been for the 
fact that there was on his country estate 
an excessively pretty girl only just eight- 
een, left to his tender guardianship by 
his late fosterfather. Smothered in the 
self -created moral atmosphere of his 
country home, and realizing that a high 
moral tone doesn't conduce very much 
to either one's health or one's happiness, 
this model young man seeks escape in 
town by leading the life of his very wick- 
ed brother Earnest, whom he has invent- 
ed for the purpose. At last, however, 
head over heels in love with the brilliant 
and sophisticated Gwendoline Fairfax, he 
resolves to* put an end to the wicked 
Earnest and lead no more his double life. 
Intending to propose to the beauteous 
Gwnendoline, he arrives in London on 
his last "Bunburying" trip and quite by 
accident reveals his convenient fiction of 
the wicked brother and the cause of the 
fiction in the pretty ward, Cecily Cardew, 
to his dandified urban friend, Algernon 
Moncrieff. Algy, incurable wag, whose 
part was taken by Ray Johnson, decides 
to do some "Bunburying" of his own, 
and before Jack can return home, pre- 
sents himself to the pretty Cecily in the 
country, claiming to be that same wicked 
brother Earnest whom Cecily has heard so 
much about. Because Cecily, it appears, 

Dellinger to Head 

Philo for Next Term 

The Philokosmian Literary Society 
met in a business session last Thursday 
noon, Dec. 8, in Philo Hall. The main 
purposes of the meeting were the elec- 
tion of Philo's anniversary president and 
the election of officers to serre during 
the next six weeks period. The members 
chose Samuel Ulrich for the honorable 
office of anniversary president. 

The results of the other election are 
as follows: 

President, Woodrow Dellinger; Vice- 
President, Clyde Mentzer; Correspond- 
ing Secretary, Charles Daugherty; Re- 
cording Secretary, David Thompson; 
Chairman of Executive Committee, De- 
W ; c Essick; Critic, Charles Kraybill; 
ianist, Richard Walborn; Chaplain, 
Dale Roth; Sergeant-at-Arms, Samuel 
Harnish, Homer Kendall, Jack Glenn. 

Further business consisted of a dis- 
cussion of the initiation of Philo's 
pledges. It was decided to postpone the 
initiation until sometime after the vaca- 
tion period. 

Following the reports of several other 
committees the joint session with Clio 
was discussed, and preliminary plans 
were made for activities of the post-holi- 
day season. Shortly afterwards the presi- 
dent declared the meeting adjourned. 

has already fallen in love with the wicked 
Earnest without ever having seen him, the 
pseudo Earnest is soon successful in the 
conquest of her heart. Meanwhile Jack, 
accepted by Gwendoline, but opposed by 
her very proper mamma on grounds of 
his obscure origin from a handbag, re- 
turns home and announces that his poor 
brother Jack has suddenly died of a se- 
vere chill in Paris, only to be told that 
Earnest is in the next room and is en- 
gaged to be married to Cecily. From 
this situation the play rushes on in a 
giddy career of intrigue, surprise, and 
romanticism that turns mockingly upon 
itself and destroys itself by its own

Oldham, '08, Heads 
New England School 


Lebanon Valley Alumnus Receives 
Principals hip; Over One Hun- 
dred Applied 

ST. JOHNSBURY, VT., Nov. 25.— 
Stanley R. Oldham, of Arlington, Mass., 
Associate Director of Camp Wyanoke 
in New Hampshire and recently secre- 
tary of the Massachusetts Teachers' 
Federation and editor of "The Massa- 
chusetts Teacher", was today elected 
principal of St. Johnsbury Academy. 

The announcement was made by the 
president of the Board of Trustees, Per- 
ley F. Hazen, president of the Passump- 
sic Savings Bank in St. Johnsbury. Pro- 
fessor James P. Richardson of Dart- 
mouth College was chairman of the com- 
mittee which selected Mr. Oldham from 
over a hundred candidates. 

For the past year the principalship of 
St. Johnsbury Academy has been filled 
by Edgar R. Brown, secretary of the 
Board of Trustees, as Acting Principal. 
Harold E. Hollister retired because of 
illness a year ago. 

With an enrollment of 420 students, 
St. Johnsbury is one of the few remain- 
ing strong co-educational secondary 
schools in New England. Since its 
founding by the Fairbanks brothers, it 
has completed 90 years of educational 
service. It has more than 3000 living 
alumni with strong groups in Boston 
and New York. Its endowment exceeds 
a quarter of a million dollars. Two mod- 
ern buildings, one the gift of an alum- 
nus, Henry J. Fuller, has been added 
within the last five years. Recently, 
Brantview, the extensive estate of Colo- 
nel Joseph Fairbanks of Washington, 
was given to the Academy, and is for 
the present being used as a residence for 
girls and women teachers. 

Mr. Oldham was born in Iowa and in 
1908 was graduated from Lebanon Val- 
ley College, Pa., where he was a "four 
letter" man in athletics. He received his 
master's degree from the University of

Humor and Verse 
Delight Readers 


Readers' Club Discusses Humor 
Of Writers and Light 

Humor and light verse were discussed 
at length in the meeting of the Readers 
Club held December 12 at the home of 
Dr. and Mrs. Wallace. 

Miss Betty Schaak as chairman of 
the meeting selected the best humorists 
who write in the English language. 
"Such Nonsense," an anthology com- 
piled by Caroline Wells, was reviewed 
by Marietta Ossi. From this collection 
she read many parodies and limericks. 
Mae Fauth reported on "A Book of 
Preface" by Don Marquis. She read 
"Preface to a Book of Poetry" and part 
of "The Foreword to a Literary's Cen- 
sor's Autobiography." Don Marquis' 
humor is rollicking and at times "rip- 

As a change from the essays of Mr. 
Marquis, Gloria Lavanture reported on 
several of P. G. Woodhouser's short 
stories. These stories all center around 
an old gentleman in a restaurant who 
tells adventurers of his numerous ne- 
phews. Miss Lavanture gave the gist 
of "The Open House," "The Missing 
Mystery" and "The Smile That Wins." 

Stephen Leacock, though reviewed 
with the Canadian writers, was discussed 
again when Clyde Mentzer, reported on 
"Behind the Beyond." Leacock's humor 
lies in the way he deviates ever so slight- 
ly from the exact connotation of words 
His work must be read aloud to give the 
quality of his humor.

Ball Will Be Held At the Penn- 
Harris Hotel, Harrisburg, 
During Holidays 

Miss Margaret C. Sharp of Altoona, 
Pa., was recently selected to represent 
Lebanon Valley College at the Inter- 
Collegiate Ball in Harrisburg Monday, 
December 26, 1932. Miss Sharp was 
notified of her selection by the super- 
visors of the affair. She has also been 
selected as a member of the Honorary 
Assisting Committee of Girls. 

Final arrangements for the ball have 
been made. The affair is again under 
the supervision of Raymond E. Best and 
Sidney S. Steele, and will be held in the 
ballroom of the Penn-Harris hotel. The 
dance will be semi-formal and will last 
from nine until two.

West Hall Holds 

Christmas Party 

West Hall again held its yearly 
Christmas party in the parlors on 
Monday night. The rooms were dec- 
orated with the traditional red and 
green, with Poinsettias and holly 
wreaths, and in one corner was the 
large fir tree. Candles burning in 
each window mingled with the scent 
of the balsam lent a real Christmas 
spirit to the group. 

There was quite an interesting pro- 
gram, each girl contributing some 
part to the entertainment. Poems 
were read, stories told and carols 
sung, and all was climaxed by a 
clever Christmas skit. 

Everyone did his duty by con- 
suming unlimited quantities of food 
and tea and more carols were sung 
until the candles burned down to 
their sockets and the party perforce 
was over. 

Joint Session Given 
By Clio and Philo 


Angel-Child Program Presented In 
Honor of Dr. and Mrs. 
Struble's "Tonkey" 

"Do you remember." "That reminds 
me . . . . " "I recall when I" were but a 
few of the many comments heard when 
Clio and Philo presented their Angel- 
Child program on Friday night in Philo 
hall. The program was in honor of 
George Waring Struble, Jr., who unfor- 
tunately was not able to be there, but 
was represented by his parents. 

Miss Jane Muth, as hostess and Mr. 
Henry Palatini, as master of ceremonies, 
received the guests and saw that they 
were seated. Each gave a little welcom- 
ing speech and then Mr. Palatini intro- 
duced Miss Margaret Kohler and Mr. 
Homer Kendall, who played a delight- 
ful duet. As both performers are high- 
ly skilled pianists, the selection was ex- 
ceptionally well executed. The flawless 
technique and interpretation were espec- 
ially worthy of admiration. 

Miss Christine Gruber, in her own in- 
imitable manner, took us back to our 
childhood days by her musical recitation, 
"Gee, I'm Scared." She was accom- 
panied by Miss Charlotte Weirick. Upon 
the insistent applause of the audience, 
these two popular artists gave as an en- 
core "The Tin Soldier." As this is a 
difficult field in public speaking, Miss 
Gruber is to be complimented on her 
excellent handling of both these num- 

The next number on the program was 
a piano solo by Miss Irene Heiser. This 
was Miss Heiser's first musical appear- 
ance on the campus and her capability 
is clearly shown by the way she handled 
both selections. 

"Advice to Parents" was the title of 
a clever skit presnted by Miss Anne 
Matula,, Mr. Clyde Mentzer, Miss Marg- 
aret Kohler and Mr. Charles Daugherty. 
The skit was very cleverly worked out 
and was fully appreciated by the audi-

Praises Romantic Love And Ad- 
vises Modern Men to 
Marry Early 

An opportunity to hear the noted Will 
Durant was given last Thursday even- 
ing, Dec. 8, for residents of Lebanon and 
the vicinity and students of Lebanon Val- 
ley College. The lecture was sponsored 
by the Temple Beth-Israel of Lebanon, 
and was entitled "Marriage in Transi- 
tion." With Dr. Durant on the plat- 
form were Rabbi Davidson of Lebanon, 
who acted as chairman, and Drs. Wal- 
lace, Wagner, Stevenson, and Butter-

Dr. Durant, unlike many modern phi- 
losophers, does not weigh down his lec- 
tures with high-sounding phrases and 
technical terminology, although there is 
enough of such material to make you 
realize that he has made a wide study 
of his subject and is fully acquainted 
with the material. Thus, he gets to the 
heart of such a subject as "Marriage in 
Transition" but still keeps his hearers 
attentive throughout. 

He began the lecture by quoting from 
Bernard Shaw who said "No one can 
talk five minutes on the subject of mar- 
riage without making a fool of himself." 
Then he asked the indulgence of the 
audience, in order that he might have 
some leeway in dealing with the delicate 
topics that must necessarily arise in such 
a discussion. 

The entire lecture was based on the 
changes that came with the agricultural 
and industrial revolutions. He began 
by describing man in the primitive hunt- 
ing stage. Then the relations between 
the sexes were unrestrained. Romantic 
love, characterized by the delay between 
the desire for possesion and the fulfill- 
ment, was not found. Fatherhood did 
not matter then. As instiutions grew 
milder, marriage by capture gave place 
to marriage by purchase. Along came 
the discovery of agriculture. It took 
thousands of years to make the transi- 
tion from the hunting to the agricultural 
stage, but when the change was made, 
the whole marriage institution was 
changed. The death rate of men was 
reduced, and the numerical reason for 
polygamy disappeared. However, the 
impulse for polygamy still remained, de- 
spite the economic features against pro-

Banquet Satiates 

Gastronomic Urges 

The annual Christmas banquet took 
place in the college dining halls Wed- 
nesday evening, December 14. The hall 
was beautifully decorated in traditional 
Christmas colors by the Art Club under 
the capable direction of Minna Wolfskeil. 

The speakers this year were called 
Pennies, Nickels, Dimes, and Dollars in 
the order of classes. In the large dining 
hall Woodrow Dellinger acted as toast- 
master with Trula Koch speaking for 
the Dollars, Fred Lehman for the Dimes, 
Jane Smith for the Nickels, and Stew- 
art Byers for the Pennies. In the small 
hall Mae Fauth presided as toastmis- 
tress, George Wood orated for the Dol- 
lars, Gem Gemmil for the Dimes, Hen- 
ry Palatini for the Nickels, and Iva 
Claire Weirick for the Pennies. 

The banquet throughout was as usual 
most delightful. The menu follows: 

Fruit cocktail, olives, celery Hearts, 
pickles, cream of tomato soup with crou- 
tons, buttered finger rolls, roast turkey, 
filling, giblec gravy, candied sweets, but- 
tered peas, creamed corn, banana salad, 
mince pie a la mode, fruit, nuts, mints, 
macaroons, cafe noir.

The undergraduate attendance at 
Will Durant's lecture in Lebanon last 
week rather jarred our "normal com- 
plex" theory. No doubt the other activi- 
ties of the week affected the gathering. 
Needless to add, the lecture was excel- 
lent. The picture of our faculty on the 
stage with Durant was gratifying. 

Often wonder how many people re- 
alize the work that goes into the pro- 
duction of a play. 

Speaking of plays calls to mind a 
phrase of "Cyrano" — "women are made 
to inspire and not to criticize." What do 
the co-eds have to say? 

Criticism is a habit on the campus. 
Must we remind that culture is appre- 

The suggestion for tuxedos at the 
banquet seems to have met with the 
usual reception. Always evolution, nev- 
er revolution! 

May Day is already receiving atten- 
tion. Note: Observe politicians. 

Wonder where Frosh persecution be- 
longs in a man's philosophy? 

Would also like to know how many 
of us have ideas about capitalism, so- 
cialism, internationalism, nationalism, 
patriotism, Catholicism, Mohammedism, 
fundamentalism, communism, futurism, 
fatalism, fascism, atheism, modernism, 
romanticism, realism, etc., etc.

miscuity. When men took to agriculture 
they realized that women knew it first. 
On account of the priority of women in 
agriculture the authority of women was 
greater than of men. In those days wo- 
men were strong economically. Men 
married early. Their wives would do 
as much work as five or six slaves, with- 
out pay. Having obtained transmit- 
table property, such as cattle, men want- 
ed to know who their children were, so 
that the right person would receive the 
inheritance. As a result, men forced 
women to be strictly monogamous, al- 
though they did not apply the same prin- 
ciple to themselves. This is how the 
double standard of morality was invent- 
ed. Now because men married early in 
the agricultural age, pre-marital contin- 
ence became a necessity and was strictly 
enforced. This was a reasonable re- 
quirement in those days because people 
married early and children were an 
economic asset. Divorce was out of 
place in a society of large families, and 
the Puritan code worked well then. 
Thus, the economic factor tends to de- 
termine the moral conditions. 

Taking up the industrial revolution, 
Dr. Durant said that these economic con- 
ditions of the agricultural period have 
disappeared. The same transformation 
is going on today as in the agricultural 
age. Life is more complex. It is more 
difficult to grow to economic maturity. 
On the farm, the young man reached 
economic maturity at sixteen. In life 
in the city, the young man reaches econ- 
omic maturity nearer thirty than twen- 
ty. A young physician, lawyer, or engi- 
neer is not economically mature until 
thirty. There is a lengthening of adol- 
escence. Just as economic life is more 
complex so the whole life is more com- 
plex. Mental and economic immaturity 
is the first factor that leads to delay in 
marriage. Then the industrial revolu- 
tion took from many women the work 
that they had once done. As large scale 
production took from women her tasks 
by making labor-saving devices, the wo- 
man who could afford it, found herself 
idle. Now any organism that does not 
fulfill a vital function degenerates. This 
is a universal law. The woman didn't 
seem to mean so much any more. The 
man encourages idleness in his wife, on 
account of "keeping up with the Joneses." 
The result was that a young man 
looking forward to marriage wondered 
if he could marry and still keep his wife 
idle. Moreover, children are more and 
more becoming luxuries, instead of econ- 
omic assets. The old vision of a home 
simply does not come. So there are 
three important things that tend toward 
putting off marriage; first, he cannot 
support his wife; second, he cannot 
maintain her in idleness; and third, he 
cannot support children. All that is left 
is a certain psysiological convenience 
with marriage and in the city there is 
competition here. So the young man 

Now the question is asked, "What is 
going to happen under such a system?" 
Mr. Durant feared several things. The 
things that are likely to happen are an 
increase in pre-marital freedom, a weak- 
ening of the family, a further increase 
in the divorce rate, and a decrease in 
the average size of the family. Birth 
control has arisen. It enables man to 
cheat nature and has freed him from 
children. Companionate marriage has 
come in vogue. This, however, is prem- 
ature. Free love has been better defined 
or characterized as love free for the 
male. Free love is a masculine inven- 
tion. If it were just as easy for a wo- 
man to be free economically and politic- 
ally, then free love would be all right 
and not free just for the men. Other- 
wise, it will cause still further degener- 
acy. Liberation comes first to the civ- 
ilized. The educated people have empty 
homes, while the lower classes have homes 
full of children, and you expect civili- 
zation to become greater. We have too 
much muscle now. The world does not 
need brawn, it needs brain. Therefore 
the transmitting of civilization is becom- 
ing more precarious. 

Finally, Dr. Durant stated that his 
conclusion was conservative. He said 
you must find some way of reconciling 
nature with economics, of farm with city. 
He suggested the dowry, but did not 
make any suggestions as to how to put 
it into practice today. We must have 
some way of reviving romantic love, with- 
out sacrificing economic achievements. As 
long as marriage has no economic basis, it 
will not regain its health. Until children 
become economic assets, marriage will 
not be desired.

At Doom, Germany, an attempt on 
the life of former Kaiser Wilhelm II 
was frustrated on Monday with the ar- 
rest of a German who was carrying a 
pistol and a huge dagger, as he crouched 
in a tower of the ex-Kaiser's castle. He 
had scaled the high wall surrounding the 
castle unseen by any servants, but later 
discovered in a tower near the study in 
which the former Kaiser usually reads in 
the afternoon. When questioned by po- 
lice, he refused to give his identity or 
his reasons for entering the castle ground 
while armed. 

In Bloomsburg, Penna., a boy and 
girl, 9 and 7 years old respectively, 
broke into the Bloomsburg Bank-Colum- 
bia Trust Company and stole two sacks 
of coins, which represented a day's Sun- 
day school collection of a local church. 
Entrance and exit were performed 
through a small window only six inches 
wide. The judge advised the police that 
he would handle the case later in the 
week. A severe punishment can be ex- 
pected due to the fact that only three 
weeks ago these two youngsters appeared 
in juvenile court after confessing that 
they had broke into several small stores 
and had stolen money and edibleg. 

Congress is quite busy these days at- 
tempting to do the most it can in this 
short session. One of the things it must 
consider is President Hoover's proposal 
to merge several bureaus. Definite con- 
gressional moves have already been made 
to kill the program before it could take 
effect. Senator King, Utah Democrat, 
introduced a resolution to set aside every 
executive order by which Mr. Hoover 
proposed to group related government 

In the House, too, the President's 
plans were in for a close battle, when 
La Guardia of New York also intro- 
duced contrary resolutions. Disapproval 
by either House or Senate within a sixty- 
day period would invalidate the orders. 


The House Ways and Means Commit- 
tee has its troubles, too. For yesterday 
a feminine army representing the Wom- 
en's National Committee for Law En- 
forcement, the Woman's Christian Tem- 
perance Union, and similar groups de- 
scended upon the committee and warned 
against the proposed legalization and 
taxation of beer. They presented the 
emotional side of the argument, occa- 
sionally going into the realm of facts, 
asserting that legalized beer meant the 
return of the open saloon, and consti- 
tuted a threat to home life. 

The queens of three countries are do- 
ing their Christmas shopping in Lon-

England, M a ud of Norway, and Alex- 
andrine of Denmark. The latter is in 
London with her husband, King Chris- 
tian, while Maud of Norway is on one 
of her frequent trips to London. 

Barry Wood, Jr., captain of the 1931 
Harvard varsity football team, and 
Harold T. Edwards, Harvard, '26, have 
presented a biochemical thesis which 
states that a football player who plays 
sixty minutes of a game develops a great- 
er energy output than produced in any 
other physical exertion. The sole ex- 
ception is the 25-mile marathon run. 
Wood used himself and other 1931 var- 
sity players as subjects of tests after hard 
games, which gave the knowledge of the 
increase of the white blood cells. The 
thesis won for Wood magna cum laude 
honors in biochemistry.

Palitini called Miss Parker "the cynic."

ally every one present had something

a big attraction of the evening. Several

"Movie Faces." Dancing continued un- 
til 11:30.

Christmas Concert 
Presented Instead 
Of Usual Pageant 

After the annual banquet on Wednes- 
day evening, instead of the usual pa- 
geant, the Y. W. C. A. and the Y. M. 
C. A. cabinets sponsored a Christmas 
concert in Engle Hall. The program 
was in full charge of Mr. Rutledge and 
to him goes very much credit for the 
splendid presentation. 

The program opened with a group of 
songs by the conservatory mixed chorus. 
They sang "Now Let All the Heavens 
Adore Thee," "O Bone Jesu" and "Lo, 
What a Branch of Beauty." 

Miss Helen Summy beautifully sang 
"The Song of Ages" (Meredith) with a 
violin obligato by Miss Adelaide San- 
ders. Mr. Albert Ebbert gave a splen- 
did interpretation of "Holy Night" 

The brass quartet, consisting of 
Messrs. Dale Roth, John Funk, Leonard 
Shrope and Leslie Saunders, conductor, 
played a group of carols. 

The orchestra then played "The First 
Nowell (paraphrase), "Spirit Dance 
from Orpeus (Gluck), and "Hungarian 
Dance" (Brahms). 

The last number was ensemble sing- 
ing with orchestral accompaniment. 
"Joy to the World," "Silent Night" and 
"O Come, All Ye Faithful" were the 
familiar carols sung.

Basketballers Open 
Season at Temple 


Lebanon Valley Veterans Pair With 
Former Frosh Stars At 

When HooKs Myiin lines up his 
1951 cage quintet tonight at 8:50, down 
in Mitten Hall in Philadelphia, it will 
probably be composed ot at least three 
veterans and two members or last year's 
yearling fave. Captain Morrison is a cer- 
tainty tor one or the forward berths, 
faired at the forward position with him 
will be found "Butch" Barthold, former 
bhillington High star and a forward on 
last year's Frosh outfit. Bill Focht, a 
forward and sub-center from last year's 
team, will be found in Captain Cal. Sel- 
ler's pivot position of last year. At one 
guard post will be found Bill Smith, 
Trenton High star, and guard on the 
1931-32 Frosh quintet. Paired with 
Smith will be William "Reds" Wogan, 
former York star, who was lost to the 
team last year due to a knee injury sus- 
tained ;in football. Williams, Tight, 
and Stone, all veterans, should also see 
plenty of action at the guard posts. 
Sprenkle, a Junior and vetrans of three 
seasons, should see action at center on 
forward, while Charlie Rust, a Sopho- 
more, should get in at a forward berth. 

Temple, a team which defeated Leb- 
anon Valley in last season's opener, will 
present a team considered to be the 
equal of her last season's quintet. 
Q'Brian and Fitch, guard and forward 
respectively of last year's team, will be 
greatly missed. However, their places 
will be filled by two members of last 
year's Frosh squad, namely Harold 
"Reds" Rosan, guard, and Jimmy Brown, 
forward, two former Southern (Phila.) 
high stars. Len Gudd, six-foot three 
inch center, a veteran of three season's, 
will hold down the pivot position. Two 
veterans, Eddie Benon, guard, and Allie 
Goldenberger, forward, will complete the 
Temple lineup. With this array of vet- 
erans and former frosh stars, against them 
the Lebanon Valey quintet will need to 
keep stepping. This game should be a

The football season of 1932 was a 
total failure at Cooper Union as far as 
results are concerned. Eight straight de- 
feats were bad enough but to make mat- 
ters worse not a single point was scored 
all season by their eleven. Bob Ploetz, 
football captain in 1931, blames insuf- 
ficient scrimmage, lack of systematic 
training, and the poor condition of the 
players. In addition he states that only 
40 per cent of the players were students 
at the institution, the rest being out- 
siders and ineligibles. 

j It seems as though the "lame duck" 
session of Congress will be just another 
"flop" as far as results are concerned. 
Our "representatives" will squabble over 
a bill which they know cannot be passed 
and completely ignore relief measures 
necessary to balance the budget and help 
pull the U. S. out of the rut. They 
promised us "beer by Christmas," but 

; we'll have to wait until that pressing 
problem is considered before certain un- 
necessary expenses are lopped off the 
financial plan of the government. 

We read of the sad plight of Post- 
ter General Brown. According to 
dignity of his office he is allowed 
an automobile for personal use. At the 
same time he is the proud possessor of 
i high silk hat. Like a real aristocrat 
Mr. Brown wanted to wear the "topper" 
while riding in his car. The two didn't 
jsA.ogether, for while riding in the rear 
at he was forced either to remove the 
at or bend his head because of the low 
of. That was not at all dignified so 
r. Brown went right ahead and pur- 
ased another $3500 car with a roof 
gh enough for him and his silk hat.

who want to keep money in circulation) . 

Then there was the Freshman at Penn 
| State who was found wandering around 
the second floor of a sorority house look- 
ing for an English professor. . . . But 
we have our own little "Greeny" who 

went through the chapel at 2 A. M. 
looking for Albright agitators the night 
before the football game. 

The era of the "specialist" might soon 
be history. The subject of "Chick" 
Sale's interesting little story has long 
since passed out of the picture; . . . . 
and what is to become of the chap who 
specializes in cutting peep-holes in the 
doors of speakeasies if the 18th amend- 
ment is repealed? 

Several "blood"-thirsty doctors re- 
cently stated to the press that 3.5 per 
cent beer is not intoxicating. . . . Well, 
neither is gin if it is only smelled; but 
3.5 per cent beer has the same effect if 
taken internally. 

or the Adventures of a Suffix in Garfield 

Early this week the Jersey Club was 
the scene of a spirited debate on the 
pronunciation of that harmless-looking 
adverbial suffix "ly". A Senior lumi- 
nary, who hails from a small village in 
northern New Jersey, corrected a Penn- 
sylvania "Dutchman" who occasionally 
visits the club. 

Said the pride of Garfield, "It's 
'clear-lee,' you dumb Dutchman, with 
'y' as the V in 'beans'." 

" 'Taint so," answered the admon- 
ished one, "it's 'clear-li', with 'y' as £ he 
T in 'pill'." 

After further devastating rebuttal, the 
matter was referred to THE LITERA- 
TUS CAMPI. The L. C. (also from the 
state to the east) answered with finality, 
"Clearly 'clear-lee'," whereupon the 
Dutchman retired in discomfiture. 

However, subsequent — and hesitant — 
reference to our mutual friend Noah dis- 
closed that 'clear-li' is clearly right. 


(Continued from Page One) 
As a final presentation, Rose Dieter 
and her Dancing Dolls were introduced. 
Among her troup of dancers were Mary 
Jane Shellenberger, Rae Anna Reber, 
Virginia Sommers, Thelma McCreary, 
Virginia Britton and Iva Claire Weirick. 
While J. Allan Ranck sang "Here Comes 
the Sandman" the dolls fell asleep 
and Miss Martha Kreider scattered sand 
over the sleeping dolls. 

In proof of the fact that Santa Claus 
had not forgotten "Tonkey", Miss Much 
presented him with a lovely stuffed dog. 
In the name of Philo, Mr. Palatini gave 
him an honorary membership in Philo. 
Due to the young man's absence and his 
inability to speak for himself, Dr. Struble 
accepted the gifts in Tonkey's name. 

After this, delicious refreshments were 
served by a committee in charge of Miss 
Elizabeth Carl and made up of Sopho- 
more girls. Mr. Palatini and Miss Muth 
and their committee, consisting of Rose 
Dieter, Helen Earnest, J. Allan Ranck 
and Billy Schaak, are to be congratulat- 
ed on the splendid program they pre- 

Cards and dancing furnished the en- 
tertainment for the rest of the evening. 
It was not until the very last minute that 
all the guests left, voting it a most de- 
lightful "Angel-Child" party. 

Those of the faculty present were Dr. 
and Mrs. Struble and Dr. and Mrs. P. 
A. W. Wallace. 

A jury recently met to inquire into a 
case of suicide. After sitting throughout 
the evidence the twelve men retired, and 
after deliberating returned with the fol- 
lowing verdict: "The jury are all of one 
mind — temporarily insane."

"Gifts" was the theme of Friendly 
Hour on Sunday evening. Catherine 
Deisher opened the meeting by softly 
playing "Silent Night" which was fol- 
lowed by prayer by the leader, Marion 
Kruger. The audience joined in singing 
Christmas carols, after which Sophia 
Morris read the Christmas Story found 
in St. Luke. Charlotte Stabley beautiful- 
ly sang "In Old Judea." The leader 
gave a very appropriate talk, stressing 
the fact that, although we may give 
many costly gifts at Christmas time, we 
are not really keeping Christmas unless 
we give ourselves. 

A number of girls participated in an 
effective pageant which was written by 
Miss Kruger. This was followed by a 
prayer of consecration. The meeting 
was closed with a postlude played by 
Catherine Deisher. 

Delgado stepped up to the counter in 
a music-store where the new clerk was 
arranging some songs. As he turned to 
wait upon her, she said in her sweetest 
and most appealing tones: 

"Have you 'Kissed Me In the Moon- 
light?' " 

"No, ma'am," he said in confusion. 
"It must have been the man at the other 
counter. I've only been here a week, 
and do not remember ever seeing you 

Murphy: I see in the papers today a 
decision of a court that a wife may, in 
some cases, be the head of the family. 

Haidee: The courts are sometimes 
slow in finding out what all intelligent 
people ought to know. 

Chapel Program 

Features Music 

An interesting chapel period on Fri- 
day morning included some group sing- 
ing and a number of selections by the 
brass quartet. First the whole group 
sang "There's a Long, Long Trail," then 
"Keep the Home Fires Burning." Af- 
ter that, the two songs were sung at the 
same time, the boys singing one and the 
girls singing the other. The effect 
proved quite interesting and amusing. 

The trombone quartet then gave some 
numbers. The quartet includes, Leslie 
Saunders, leader; John Funk, Dale Roth 
and Leonard Shrope. 

Time was left for two request num- 
bers, so the student body sang "Let Me 
Call You Sweetheart" and "Just a Song 
at Twilight." 

Miss Ruth Bailey played the piano 
accompaniments and Mr. Rutledge led 
the songs. 

Liver young and liver old, 
Liver hot and liver cold, 
Liver tender and liver tough, 
But don't you think we've had lirer

As smokers become more experienced, they demand 
milder cigarettes. Chesterfields are milder. Their mild- 
ness is just as much a feature as the beauty of their 

The tobaccos are mild to begin with. Patient ageing 
and curing make them milder still. And Chesterfields 
contain just the right amount of Turkish — not too 
much — carefully blended and cross-blended with ripe, 
sweet Domestic tobaccos. 

Chesterfields are milder. They taste better. That's 
why "They Satisfy."

The cast was an exceptionally well bal- 
anced one. Not only were the players 
themselves possessed of much the same 
high degree of ability, but so closely in- 
terwoven was the plot that, strictly speak- 
ing, no one had a leading role. More- 
over, of the nine characters, only the two 
butlers can be said to have had minor 

I have already spoken of Allen Buz- 
zell and Ray Johnson, who as Jack and 
Algy lead the mad tempo of the play. 
While Jack, with his socially doubtful 
past of having been bred, if not born, 
in a handbag (whether it had handles 
or not can be of slight importance in 
regard to a man who was so careless as 
to lose or misplace both his parents), 
and his generous willingness to accept as 
his mother Miss Prism, married or not — 
while Jack, I say, provides the plot of 
the story and as much is the Claudio of 
this "Much Ado About Nothing"; it is 
Algy who has Benedick's function of 
supplying the merriment and gaiety of 
the play. In this play, however, Claudio 
is paired off with Beatrice, and the sweet 
heroine is given to Benedick. But enough 
of that 

Miss Mildred Nye, as Cecily Cardew, 
played beautifully the part of the sweet, 
affectionate, and romantic country girl. 
Miss Margaret Kohler essayed the far 
more difficult part of Gwendoline Fair- 
fax, brilliant, clever, sophisticated, and 
thoroughly experienced city girl. I can- 
not agree, however, that she was alto- 
gether successful, for the contrast be- 
tween the two girls was not sufficiently 
accentuated. And I, for one, would not 
have changed Miss Nye's charming con- 
ception of rural English gentility. 

Perhaps the most brilliant acting of 
the entire play was done by Miss Miriam 
Book. For sheer adroitness and artistry, 
in contrast to the charming naturalness 
of Miss Nye's acting, I have never seen 
her work surpassed in amateur theatri- 
cals. Playing the part of Lady Brack- 
nell, domineering old dowager, she com- 
bined in just their right proportions the 
highly respectable qualities of greed, cun- 
ning, slavish observance of the proprie- 
ties, and practical disdain of all foolish 
and romantic notions. 

The ancient formula for the Italian 
Comedia del Arte was "a high marriage, 
a low marriage, and a comic marriage." 
Algy and Cecily obviously fulfil the first 
requirement; Jack, of railway cloak-room 
origin, and Gwendoline fulfill, I suppose, 
the second, and for the third we turn 
to the mirth-provoking Dr. Chasuble and 
Miss Prism represented on the stage by 
Fred Lehman and Mary Gossard. That 
both Dr. Chasuble,, who by remaining 
single had become a permanent public 
temptation, and Miss Prism, described at 
once as "a female of repellent aspect, 
remotely connected with education," and 
"the most cultivated of ladies, and the 
very picture of respectability" were ex- 
cruciatingly funny I cannot deny. It 
is my opinion, however, that they were 
made unnecessarily grotesque. The ef- 
fectiveness of a satirical picture depends 
largely upon its ability to convince. If, 
however, the picture is turned into an ab- 
surdly impossible caricature, the element 
of satire ceases to operate, and the figure 
becomes a mere clown having no other 
function than to amuse. My quarrel of 
course is not with the acting, which, 
granted the conception, was remarkably 
well done, but with the conception it- 
self. As I read my Oscar Wilde, Dr. 
Chasuble and Miss Prism seem the cre- 
ations of a mind bent on satire rather 
than of the generous and fun-loving 
mind of a Dickens. 

The part of Lane, butler to Mr. Mon- 
crieff, was creditably performed by Carl 
Long, and of Merriman, butler to Mr. 
Worthing, by Clyde Mentzer. 

Had finances permitted, the stage set- 
ting, which was without distinction, could 
have been vastly improved. Take, for 
example the opening of Act Two, where 
Cecily and Miss Prism are conversing in 
the garden, prior to the romantic en- 
trance of Algernon. Could we have 
had, instead of the nondescript collection 
of furniture that was used, a first class 
garden back drop with appropriate wings 
and furnishings to match, and then some 
colored spot-light effects in the love scene 
between Cecily and Algernon later, not 
only would the total artistic effect of the 
play have been greater, but Miss Nye 
would have been materially aided in her 
interpretation of the romantic Cecily. 

Aside from the rather minor points 
which I have made, the play was really 
very competently done. The players 
themselves, the Junior Class, and Dr. 

Wallace as director of the play, richly 
deserve our congratulations. As for 
Jack, who was for the first time in his 
life reduced to the painful position of 
having to speak the truth (though the 
truth, he says, isn't quite the sort of 
thing one tells to a nice, sweet, refined 
girl like Cecily) ; as for Algy, who pro- 
tests there is nothing romantic about a 
definite proposal (because of the ghast- 
ly posibility that one may be accepted) ; 
as for Cecily, who feels she looks quite 
plain after her German lesson; as for 
Gwendoline, who never travels without 
her diary that she may have something 
sensational to read on the train; as for 
Lady Bracknell, who does not approve of 
anything that tampers with natural ig- 
norance; as for Dr. Chasuble, who must 
be very learned indeed, since he has 
never written a single book; as for the 
incomporable Miss Prism, who can un- 
derstand a misanthrope, but a woman- 

thrope, never we shall remember 

them all as highly gratifying substitutes 
for Oscar Wilde's proposed Society for 
the Prevention of Discontent among the 
Upper Classes.

Student Recital Held 

In the Conservatory 

The first students' recital of the year 
was held in Engle Hall on Tuesday eve- 
ning, December 13. The recital was well 
attended and was very much enjoyed by 
all. It certainly gave a splendid sample 
of the fine work being done this year in 
the Conservatory. 

The clarinet ensemble is composed of 
members of the wind-instrument class. 
None of the members of the ensemble 
played a clarinet before the beginning 
of the semester, and the only lessons 
they have had on the instrument were 
the class lessons under Professor Rut- 
ledge. Besides proving the remarkable 
accomplishment of the group, the num- 
ber that the ensemble played showed the 
ability of Mr. Robert Heath, a junior, 
in arranging music. Mr. Heath ar- 
ranged the selection "Largo," especially 
for this group. 

Each of the soloists proved himself an 
artist in his line of work and the per- 
formances of the several newcomers to 
the campus gave us promise of great

. . . AND . . . 





Among the book notes this week, we 
find several boners to list. A customer 
walked into a bookstore and very force- 
fully asked for "The Mice of Sweden". 
. . . the clerk immediately turned pale 
and began searching for the book. . . . 
it was later discovered she wanted "The 
Rats of Norway". . . . then there's the 
woman who wanted a detective story 
called "Habeas Corpus". . . . the clerk 
knew the lady had made a mistake and 
she finally persuaded her, she wanted 
Dorothy Sayers' "Have His Carcase". 
... it took the clerk in the Putman 
bookstore a minute or so to realize that 
what the lady who asked for "A Good 
Time In India" really wanted was "Hin- 
doo Holiday". . . . one of the two silver 
medals that are awarded by the Com- 
monwealth Club of California for the 
"finest book by a California author" 
was given to William G. McAdoo for 
his "Crowded Years". . . . J. B. Priest- 
ley, the English modern Dickens, has a 
new play, "Dangerous Corners," open- 
ing on Broadway. . . . In 1910 the best 
seller was "The Rosary," in 1912 "The 
Harvester," in 1928 "The Bridge of 
San Luis Rey," who said that American 
people are not being mature in their 
book reading. . . . some Hebraic child 
recently inquired for "Rosenblum," by 
Louisa May Alcott; what she really want- 
ed was "Rose In Bloom". . . . "talkies" 
do increase book sales. . . . after seeing 
several cinema productions the public 
made a rush at the local bookstores for 
"Frankenstein" and "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. 
Hyde". . . . Noel Coward, that brilliant 
young playwright, has returned to 
America. He will witness his new brain- 
child, "Design for Living," come to life 
under the able acting of Lynn Fontanne 
and Alfred Lunt. ... It seems as if some 
one wrote a harsh criticism on Douglas 
Fairbanks, Jr.'s articles published in 
"Vanity Fair." Fairbanks, Jr., became 
peeved over the socks, and it took a great 
deal of coaxing to submit any more ar- 
ticles. . . . Sinclair Lewis has completed 
his latest novel, "Ann Vickers". . . . This 
past month a literary party was given 
in honor of Pearl S. Buck, the author 
of "The Good Earth," in the Waldorf 
Astoria. Quoting from "The New York- 
er," "There in Mrs. Buck's honor, on an 
evening of unbearable heat, some two 
hundred-odd people of our town assemb- 
led docilely at the appointed hour and 
in a state of acute discomfort, stuffed 
themselves with expensive groceries and 
then, in the ghastly tradition of such oc- 
casions, sat around on gold chairs and 
listened to speeches". . . . that's what 
people get for going to literary parties. 
. . . Anita Black, play-reader of the 
Theatre Guild, speaking before the sum- 
mer students at Columbia University, 
named Eugene O'Neill, Elmer Rice, 
John Howard Lawson, Maxwell Ander- 
son, and Sidney Howard as the five out- 
standing playwrights in America tonight. 
. . . after a good dinner, we suppose. . . .

V/ omen's Auxiliary 

Meets on Campus 

The annual Christmas party of the 
Woman's Auxiliary of Lebanon Val 
ley College was held in North Hall 
parlor last Thursday afternoon. The 
meeting was opened by the president 
Mrs. G. D. Gossard, who read the 
Christmas story, followed by the 
Lord's Prayer. After the devotions 
■.the following program was rendered: 
A piano solo by Ruth Bailey; a so- 
prano solo by Helen Summy; a vio- 
lin solo by Martha Elser; a trombone 
quartet playing Christmas carols by 
students of the conservatory; read- 
ing by Alice Ritchie; solo by Mr. 
Roth, who accompanied himself on 
the guitar, and a mixed quartet sing- 
ing Christmas carols. Refreshments 
were served, after which the meeting 
was adjourned. The party was at- 
tended by fifty-one women. 

The Auxiliary has recently bought 
furniture for West Hall parlor and 
lamps and other articles for the par- 
lors of all three halls. 

Harry Zech Talks 

At Prayer Meeting 

The regular student prayer meeting 
was held Wednesday evening, December 
7, in Philo Hall. The devotions of the 
meeting were conducted by Mr. Homer 
Kendall. The group was favored by a 
vocal solo, sung very beautifully by Miss 
Jane Showers, Miss Margaret Kohler 
playing the accompaniment. 

Mr. Harry Zech was introduced as the 
speaker for the service. For the title 
of his talk Mr. Zech chose "The March 
of Eleven Men," referring to the influ- 
ence of the eleven disciples of Christ 
upon our present world. He gave an 
historical sketch of Christianity from the 
time of the delegation of the disciples 
until the present. Historical evidence 
shows that civilization would never have 
reached the present peak without Christ. 
The Gospel of Christ through the 
Church and the Christian people has 
abolished slavery, has produced a de- 
mocracy, and has contributed a general 
sense of equality. It has fought the bat- 
tle of the weak against the strong, ele- 
vated womanhood, ennobled marriage 
abolished infanticide, protected child- 
hood, and blessed the family. 

Society however is not yet Christian. 
We still have poverty and war. But 
Christianity never rests. Let us march in 
line with the eleven men of the Bible to 
establish a world order of justice, mer- 
cy, and peace. Jesus said, "Lo, I am 
with you always, even unto the end of 
the world."

In order to give the dance a genuine 
"collegiate" atmosphere, the committee 
has succeeded in booking the "College 
Ramblers," a twelve-piece novelty band 
which specializes in college dances, 
proms and house parties. 

Miss Sharp is a student in the Engle 
Conservatory, taking her final year in 
Public School Music. Before coming to 
Lebanon Valley, Miss Sharp attended 
Punxsutawney High School, Johnstown 
Center Junior College, University of 
Pittsburgh and Indiana State Teachers' 

Miss Sharp succeeds Miss Mary Ann 
Rupp '32 as the L. V. representative to 
the annual Inter-Collegiate Ball. Miss 
Rupp represented our institution at the 
ball last year. 

Those on the campus desiring tickets 
for the dance may secure them from 
Miss Sharp, Stark Bros., or at the Penn- 
Harris Hotel. 

Y. M. C. A. NOTES 

A short but interesting "Y" was held 
in the "Y" room of the Men's Dormi- 
tory on Sunday evening, December 11, 
at the usual time. Homer Kendall led 
the service in the absence of the devo- 
tional chairman. Miller Schmuck read 
the Christmas story from the Gospels, 
and offered the devotional prayer. Mr. 
Kendall then read a few excerpts from 
literature with reference to the Christ- 
mas Story and its attendant spirit. The 
remainder of the time was spent quite 
interestingly in the singing of familiar 
Christmas carols. 

Let us attempt to make these Vesper 
services more interesting and worthwhile 
by a larger attendance after the holi- 
days. The devotional committee is anx- 
ious for your cooperation. 

A college graduate was walking down 
the street one evening with a friend of 
Irish descent, and pausing to look up 
at the starry sky, remarked with enthu- 

"How bright Orion is tonight." 

"So that is O'Ryan, is it? Well, thank 
the Lord there's one Irishman in heav- 
en, anyhow."
